I used to work as a cop. One time, I made a regular traffic stop. When I approach the driver, he appeared to be eating stuff. Well, turned out he had eaten a couple bags of marijuana. I could see it all over his teeth. And also the smell. Anyway, I cuffed him, searched him, and found rock cocaine. Good nite.
Anyway, later the issue came up. The question in the station was should we take him to a hospital because he swallowed a couple bags of marijuana? I asked around and not a single cop there knew the answer. He appeared all right, so we eventually decided to take him to jail and let the county cops take care of it.
Is there anything wrong with eating marijuana like this guy did? I later had to testify in court to get this guy convicted of possession, transport with intent of distribution, etc. so I know he was ok. Do you actually get high from eating it? The whole night this guy was crying. Didn't look high at all.
marijuana is a psychotropic drug, and can be ingested. Although for best effect it should cooked in a high fat dish otherwise much of the drug is wasted. Nevertheless a couple of even small bags probably had this guy talking with his ancestors and being in a jail he was probably crying through a killer bout of paranoia.
