Can you overdose on weed?

Back in May of 2019, a coroner in Louisiana claimed to have recorded the first death exclusively caused by weed.

Toxicology results for a woman who died suggested she was killed by an excess amount of THC, the primary psychoactive component of weed, the coroner, Christy Montegut, told the New Orleans Advocate. Montegut failed to find anything else—drugs, alcohol, disease—that could have attributed to her death.
