So what the hell happened to this guy? Healthy men in their 20's don't just die. A few minutes later, his blood work and urine tox screen came back. He had lost a good deal of blood, but not enough to bleed to death. His alcohol level was 0. His tox screen, however, was positive.
He was so high that he vomited during the ambulance ride, and he aspirated that vomit back into his lungs, and that caused his heart to stop. But the story doesn't end there.
Did you forget all his stab wounds? Because we certainly did, once we verified that all of them were superficial. After talking with the police, we found out that he and his two roommates were smoking pot in their flat, and a few guys broke in to steal it from them. They were all too high to fight back, and all three of them were stabbed multiple times.
By my count that makes exactly two potentially fatal reasons not to smoke marijuana.
As you all surely know, I'm always up for a marijuana debate. Any takers?
