Partygoers Chow on Marijuana-Laced Birthday Cake, 10 Hospitalized — Including One in Coma: Official

MADRID (AP) — A university student in Spain’s capital went into a comatose state early Sunday after he ate a birthday cake baked with marijuana, while nine of his fellow students were also hospitalized, officials said.

The comatose man wasn’t responding to stimulus when admitted to a Madrid hospital, but he later recovered, city emergency services spokesman Javier Chivite said. The man was still hospitalized.

A total of 11 people were affected by eating the cake, Chivite said. Ten of them were hospitalized, the hospital official said. Chivite said they were treated for irregular heartbeats.

An official at Puerta de Hierro de Majadahonda hospital confirmed the man went into a comatose state, but declined to reveal further details, citing privacy issues. The hospital official spoke on condition of anonymity because she wasn’t authorized to be identified by name.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the pot cake directly led to the man’s comatose state, or if he had ingested other substances or had underlying medical problems.

Jose Dominguez de Posada, dean of Madrid’s Alfonso X University, said the students were all male and aged between 18 and 22 and the most affected was studying veterinary sciences. Dominguez de Posada said the university campus houses about 12,000 students.

  • Your what hurts??
yah...it can be very dangerous to ingest large amounts of potent marijuana, and that's what happens when some genius tries this.  Wetting and baking marijuana releases the drug much more efficiently than smoking it does, and of course there is no possible way to know or control the dosage.

My other favorite stupid marijuana trick are the guys who blow themselves up using butane to make "hash oil".  We have somebody blow all the windows out of their house over in Portland doing this at least once a month.  Some guy completely destroyed a detached garage this way....he had the garage door opened just enough to provide a good air mix with the butane, his buddy stepped outside to light a cigarette, and FOOM up she goes....

Nah, couldn't have happened.  Pot is harmless.  People are saying it all over the Internet so it much be true.

That's what I hear.  :beer: Oops, beer is deadly. Never mind.
