Most marijuana advocates were caught aback earlier this week when Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton, told a Colorado audience that marijuana was … deadly.
But we also have anecdotal evidence now from Colorado, where some of the people who were taking marijuana for those purposes, the coroner believes, after they died, there was drug interactions with other things they were taking.
The word Clinton was looking for was not “anecdotal” but rather “imaginary,” because no such deaths from
interactions have been found.
Today, reports the Washington Post, Clinton walked the remark back.
A spokeswoman for Chelsea Clinton told The Post in a statement that “while discussing her and her mother’s support for rescheduling marijuana to allow for further study of both its medical benefits and possible interactions with other medications, Chelsea misspoke about marijuana’s interaction with other drugs contributing to specific deaths.”
The Post went the extra mile and mentioned something that is often not cited in mainstream reporting on cannabis: “On its own, marijuana is not known to have any fatal dosage level. The DEA itself acknowledges that nobody has ever died from marijuana alone.”
