I actually don’t smoke. But if you want to spark one up, I’ll light your beeswax rope for you.
I’m a little proud of you tonight, America. Just a little, but I’m proud.
A couple of big wins for humans tonight: #1. Same-Sex Marriage is being legalized in a lot of states and #2. Marijuana use is being legalized in a couple of states. #3. New Hampshire just abolished their state income tax. I’m a little proud, America. Just a little.

Can Weed Kill You?
At present it is estimated that marijuana’s [median lethal dose] is around 1:20,000 or 1:40,000. In layman terms this means that in order to induce death a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much marijuana as is contained in one marijuana cigarette. [National Institute on Drug Abuse]-supplied marijuana cigarettes weigh approximately .9 grams. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response.
