Lethal?

What absolutely irresponsible reporting!

I thought we had disposed of this nonsense a while ago, but there’s been an arrest in conjunction with the marijuana gumballs, which gave the media the opportunity to spew this:

Howard County police said each gumball contained about one gram of marijuana. The state forensic lab has not determined if the level of THC in the gumballs is lethal, but authorities warned parents to stay on the lookout because the gumballs are dangerous if ingested by kids.

There is not a lethal dose of marijuana. Nobody has ever, ever died from an overdose of marijuana. This is like saying that the state forensic lab has not determined if the level of wheat in a piece of bread is lethal. It may well be true that the lab has not done that, but why would they even bother?
