Chelsea Clinton Knows a Secret: Marijuana Can Kill

In fairness, she's just trying to make sense of her mom's pot policy.

While stumping for her mother, Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, in Ohio this past weekend, former and perhaps future First Daughter Chelsea Clinton intimated that fatal marijuana overdoses are a thing we should all keep in mind.

Clinton—whose father, former President Bill Clinton, famously and fatuously claimed to have smoked marijuana but not inhaled it—first informed the Youngstown, Ohio, town hall audience that there has been talk of marijuana being helpful for certain conditions of this life.

From the Daily Caller:

“Anecdotally we have lots of evidence in … epilepsy, but also in autism, in stimulating appetite for people who are on intensive chemotherapy regimens, for people who have non-epilepsy seizure disorders and challenges,” Chelsea explained.

However, Clinton cautioned, let’s not get all overoptimistic and rashly exuberant about the possibilities of this plant! There is a dark side to cannabis consumption, a deathly shadowy reality that wisdom and caution compel her to share.

Again from the Daily Caller:

“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.”

Chelsea didn’t specify which planet the voices narrating these anecdotes came in on. She also neglected to name the coroner who believes that a drug interaction with medicinal, or any other type of, marijuana resulted in a fatal contraindication.

At the time of publishing, Google search has yet to return the name of Chelsea Clinton's anecdotal coroner. This post will be updated as soon as that coroner’s name appears.
