You can't die from smoking too much pot, its impossible for a variety of reasons, primarily because the cannabinoid receptors reside primarily in the brain (amongst other locations in the body) and opiate receptors reside in the brain stem- this controls respiration or breathing.

Death will occur from an overdose of opiates in most cases for this reason, contrarily, marijuana does not have effects on respiration. Large amounts can be taken without serious adverse effects other than getting extremely high.

Deaths related to marijuana use are quite uncommon. Deaths related to alcohol use are quite frequent -- in fact, they are inevitable if the person drinks enough, long enough. This should not be considered an endorsement of marijuana use. Smoking marijuana is implicated in chronic bronchitis, asthma, and may be related to the development of lung cancer. It is also not conducive to a productive lifestyle when used in large quantities.
