College Student on Spring Break Falls from Balcony After Eating Pot Edible

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nati...icle-1.1743538

A college student visiting Colorado for spring break fell to his death after eating marijuana cookies in what's believed to be the first publicized fatality linked to pot since its legalized sale in January.

Levy Thamba, a 19-year-old exchange student at Northwest College in Powell, Wyo., had just eaten the pot-laced treats with friends last month when he became "very agitated and upset" and ran off a fourth floor hotel balcony, according to the Denver Coroner's Office.

Three of Thamba's friends, who said it was the first time any of them had consumed marijuana, said one of them had purchased the cookies from a legal supplier. At least one of them is 21.

"The kids took this cookie, one of them took a bite and then got kind of sick," Chief Deputy Coroner Michelle Weiss-Samaras told the Daily News. "The other two obviously didn't have a problem and then this one became very agitated and upset and didn't do well."

"He got up and just started running and hits the railing," Weiss-Samaras described the autopsy report's findings. "I'm not really sure that he knew what was going on … the kids were pretty traumatized."

The teen's autopsy found him having 7.2 nanograms of active THC per milliliter of blood. The state law in impaired driving cases sets a standard of 5 nanograms per milliliter, the Denver Post reported.

Toxicology tests for other drugs or alcohol also came back negative and Thamba didn't have any known physical or mental-health issues, according to Weiss-Samaras.

The official cause of death for Thamba, who's originally from the Republic of Congo, includes "marijuana intoxication."

"It's very sad. Obviously nobody knows how your body's going to act," Weiss-Samaras said of someone trying marijuana for the first time.

With the Denver Coroner's Office overseeing 64 counties, Weiss-Samaras couldn't definitely say that Thamba's death was the first related to marijuana consumption since January.

To her knowledge Thamba's death is believed to be the first.

Aww, that is sad
Makes me think of the stories about kids who down giant energy drinks for the first time with their friends, only to go into cardiac arrest from caffeine overdose.

Re: College Student on Spring Break Falls from Balcony After Eating Pot Edible

thats one thing about weed, if you havent ever tried it, dont do it unless you are with people who totally have your back. I have seen some ungodly reactions and its not because its dangerous, its because people either ingest to much to fast or they dont know its chronic and they overdo it and bam..... your blown for a minute :/

I remember my first time really gettin high, chronic and asshole of a brother of mine, I thought I was trippin balls and the shit was laced. After 5 years, Im use to to and its nowhere near the first time

Re: College Student on Spring Break Falls from Balcony After Eating Pot Edible

Nothing sounds out of line here really. The person who felt "kind of sick" was probably just someone who hadn't done weed before or often enough and they took too much. As for the fucktard that dove off the balcony, that's just darwinism at work. So what's the issue here folks? Lol.

In fact, give young people more weed and see who offs themselves doing dumb shit. Again, Darwinism. Let the stupid "weed" themselves out! Wouldn't you rather they off themselves doing dumb shit like this than to be out on the streets driving with you?

They say it's the first time any of them consumed weed. I doubt that, but that's probably true for the dumb fuck that took a dive off the balcony.

Spring break. Wonder how many drunk kids fall off of balconies or drown, yet that rarely makes the news.
