    What do you guys think about this scromiting nonsense? For anyone wondering, its s condition where people go to the ER screaming and vomiting from too much marinuana (lol).

    'Scromiting' is becoming an all-too-familiar site at emergency rooms
    The condition, called Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome (CHS), is not yet properly understood
    Medical experts believe the symptoms appear from individuals using or consuming heavy amounts of marijuana over a long period of time
    Doctors note that the condition could stem from the body being over saturated by cannabinoids, affecting the hypothalamus

    Dr Aimee Moulin said she has seen a rise in cases since California legalized recreational marijuana last November
    Chronic cannabis users are at risk of experiencing a horrifying new condition that is being reported at hospitals across the country.

    'Scromiting,' doctors say, is becoming an all-too-familiar site at emergency rooms, with patients 'screaming and vomiting' as they turn up for help.

    'I've screamed out for death,' Chalfonte LeNee Queen, 48, told NPR after experiencing the terrifying illness.

    'I've cried out for my mom, who's been dead for 20 years, mentally not realizing she can't come to me.'

    Little research has been conducted on the topic, but one study found that for scromiting to occur, cannabis users would have to consume marijuana three to five times per day to develop CHS.


    Lol at this fake news crap. There is no such thing as scromiting.

    edit: I see you added more "sources"...

    That's the thing, it says you need to consume 3 - 5 times per day, but there's no way someone could get to that point without ODing.

    You didn't even own a cat man, we keep trying to tell you that. That was a dead squirrel you found in the road that you kept cuddling and calling Princess Persephone, the only pussy you lost that night were all the hookers you chased off.

    To think that heavy consumption of a drug that you inhale would not have any negative side effects is like an alcoholic saying he is fine now because he only drinks beer. Of course that shit will hurt you eventually. Weed Smoke isn’t good for your lungs, blood pressure, blood flow, skin, memory....

    Maybe if it were legalized, people would be able to experiment more with healthier ways of ingesting it. Or we could actually get real studies on it without miles of red tape.
