4 Lessons From Celebrity Weed Horror Stories

Not everyone's got good judgment when it comes to the green stuff. Learn from these mistakes.

1. Dej Loaf


The mistake: ODing on edibles

"Fun Fact," tweeted the rapper and singer in August. "I ate a weed brownie and almost died (well at least in my mind i did) while on [Nicky Minaj's] Pink Print tour." During what she deemed, "the most insane shit" she'd ever experienced, she felt like she was on a "life rollercoaster" and had a "legit thought" she'd wake up as a newborn baby. Fortunately, she eventually passed out and woke up in the hospital, where her discharge papers read, "Overdosed on Marijuana," The moral of the story, concluded Loaf: "stick to Hennessy."

2. Tyga


The mistake: Failing to child-proof

Tyga Snapchatted a super cute video of his three-year-old son, King Cairo, playing in his living room. The issue? A pile of weed and a pack of Swisher Sweets, commonly used to roll blunts, also happened to be on full display on the coffee table. Tyga deleted the video from his Snapchat after TMZ reached out for comment, but not before he attracted major scorn from across the internet.

3. Bill Murray


The mistake: Joking about having a bomb - while carrying two pounds of weed.

As a pre-med student in 1970, Murray was busted with two pounds of marijuana after joking that he had a bomb in his suitcase while traveling from Chicago to Denver. As a first-time offender, Murray got five years probation. It also ended his college career, which you could argue indirectly contributed to his becoming an actor. All's well that ends well?

4. Maureen Dowd


The mistake: Underestimating the importance of dosage

The New York Times columnist penned a now-infamous, fairly melodramatic account of the night she ate an entire THC-infused chocolate bar while covering a weed legalization story in Colorado. The bar contained roughly 16 times the recommended dose for a novice user, and she ended up, "panting and paranoid," unable even to get up and get herself a glass of water. She says she was in a hallucinatory state for the next eight hours. Good times.

Most people know that to consume alcohol and then get behind the wheel of a car is very dangerous — not just for the driver and passengers, but for anyone else sharing the road. For cannabis consumers, however, understanding levels of impairment is not so straightforward. To date, there is not yet a technology used by law enforcement that can accurately detect cannabis impairment similar to alcohol breathalyzers.
