Am I Dead Yet?: The Lethal Doses Of Different Things

September 1, 2015

This is a video from AsapSCIENCE explaining the lethal dose of a bunch of different drugs, as well as other things like water, sound and elevation. It says you'd have to eat 22kg (~49 lbs) of cannabis to die, or smoke 680kg (~1,500 lbs) worth in 15 minutes. Is that a challenge? Also, I didn't know you could really die from the cyanide in cherry pits. I thought that was just a story my mom made up to get me to stop sticking them up my nose.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Landon, who heard the lethal dose of my love is a single hug, and he is correct.

    I just wish I had a single bowl (of herb) right now, let alone 1500 pounds worth. 😢

    Science uses metric. Metric is far easier and precise to use to measure anything as opposed to imperial.

  • Cup-O-Jesus

    Science does NOT use metric. Every single discipline, every single profession, every single country, every single person in the world uses metric, with the sole exceptions being the third-world countries of Liberia, Burma and the USA.

    This is quite possibly the worst "science" I've ever seen, and I once listened to the man who built the creationist museum explain his reasoning.

    Anyone who says that it takes smoking 1,500 pounds of a psychoactive substance to die, is really, really, really, really, really, really, really, REALLY bad at science.

    And I won't even address the pulmonary effects of smoking 1,500 pounds of ANYTHING.

    Preposterous.

    650Kg of Cannabis doesn't contain 650Kg of THC...

    I didn't watch this video, but I did read this comment and learned all I needed to know.
