Death by "cannabis toxicity".

The article itself is incredibly short, so I'll just paste it here - the link is simply proof that this story actually exists. Bolded text is added for emphasis, obvs.

"A MAN aged 36 is thought to have become the first in Britain to die directly from cannabis poisoning.

Lee Maisey smoked 25,000 joints during his 11-year addiction to the drug — due to be decriminalised later this month.

He said he had a headache before collapsing.

Yesterday a coroner recorded that single Mr Maisey, of Summerhill, Pembrokeshire, died from cannabis toxicity.

Afterwards experts warned cannabis was getting stronger — and risks were even higher if it is eaten rather than smoked."

11 years = 4015 days

That's 6.22.... joints per day. That's gotta be really shitty weed, if you need 6 joints a day to get you off.
