Fox News 8 Cleveland recently reported an interesting occurrence, which is that a Louisiana coroner claimed that a woman passed away from an overdose of THC, the psychoactive substance in marijuana. Marijuana is a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act and is illegal under federal law.
The news report links to the New Orleans Advocate, St. John Baptist Parish Corner Christy Montegut, which released the coroner’s conclusion, which found:
“It looked like it was all THC because her autopsy showed no physical disease or afflictions that were the cause of death. There was nothing else identified in the toxicology — no other drugs, no alcohol. There was nothing else.” He added,
“I’m thinking this lady must have vaped this THC oil and got a high level in her system and (it) made her stop breathing, like a respiratory failure.”
