    I'm not sure how many it impacts, but Daily Mail is the kind of garbage that sees two stories about Vodka Tampons and butt chugging and runs a headline calling it the hottest teen fad or some shit.

    I'm just here to say the disorder is real, even if the article is nonsense.

    Go talk to a doctor or read a study, smart guy. All available resources for you.

    There actually is a very, very low percentage of people that have an aversion, like an allergy to marijuana. It causes vomiting and dizziness - completely non-fatal. It would be shocking if any ER received multiple cases of this though because the numbers are exceedingly low. Why anyone would actually visit a doctor for this is actually the more puzzling question.

    Literally nobody defended the drug yet as of your post.

    Only a guy who claims he had a cat but it turned out it was an irish squirrel that drugged him.

    Stop being such a snowflake and acting like your Fox with your fake news.

    dismissing the claim though sarcasm is a defense, and subsequent posts proved my comment further.
    who is the snowflake? I made a comment and you come white knighting your drug.

    I would have been the first one rushed to the ER if this was real.

    Do you know what a "theory" is?

    Probably not. Real doctors diagnose it in real life. It's real.

    Shocking, I know.

    I've seen people throw up from smoking too much with no tolerance.

    Or from taking huge bong tips.

    i once smoked weed, and ate an entire box of samoas in one sitting.
    i'm just glad i lucked out and didn't OD from either the weed or samoas.

    we all have something to be thankful for, and for me, that is it.

    I've heard edibles can fuck you up big time. Maybe that's what causes scromiting.

    Which is a shame, because i like weed but I hate the smell, the smoke, the coughing, the cottonmouth... Edibles sounded like a good option for me but everyone says they're too unpredictable

    You could punch 15 cones a day and get just 15 "breaths"of smoke through the lungs. Go camping and light a fire and you are going to be consuming far more smoke. Hell, how many decent puffs can you get off a single ciggie? Enough for countless cones worth of smoke. Remember "teh potz is more powerful now" which just means you have to ingest less smoke to get just as high.

    Anyway turns out weed smokers longs are actually healthy and good for use in lung transplants. The amount of smoke they do get keeping them strong (but not enough to do damage nor possessing the toxic chemicals of tobacco products).

    https://hightimes.com/news/marijuana-users-have-good-lungs-for-transplanting/

    Now you can say it's pro weed propaganda but they will happily use weed smokers lungs for transplants so they are putting them in people like there's nothing wrong with them.

    Yeah I know all the propaganda. And it all comes from the pro pot community. You can make tests and results look anyway you want them too. Bottom line is that common sense prevails here. I really don’t give a shit because I’m not a daily puffer. But to deny smoke can damage lungs, cause throat and bronchial issues, as well as effect blood circulation and pressure is silly.

    Here's a little science for you:
    MSDS (or SDS in modern safety terms) for THC:
    https://fscimage.fishersci.com/images/D14038~.pdf

    LDL oral rat 3000 ppm THC
    LDL oral rabbit 2000 ppm ethyl alcohol

    closest direct comparison I can find regarding toxicity.
