Waka Flocka Flame
Waka Flocka Flame called 911 after he ate too many edibles and started freaking out over the weekend. Of course, it’s pretty common knowledge that it’s virtually impossible to actually overdose on marijuana. Experts have said that you’d need to consume almost 1,500 pounds of marijuana in about 15 minutes to induce a deadly overdose.
But that doesn’t mean that getting stoned out of your mind can’t still be a strange experience. Apparently, things got a little too weird for Waka over the weekend.
The rapper was in Seattle on Sunday night to perform at the cannabis festival, the Dope Cup.
But it sounds like Waka was having a little too much fun with Washington’s legal cannabis.
After eating what must have been a sh*t ton of edibles and then following them up by smoking another sh*t ton of blunts, Waka started tweaking out.
Things got so bad he made an emergency call for medical help and ended up in an ambulance with medics.
After they checked his vitals, Waka Flocka was sent back to his hotel room to sleep it off.
But don’t worry, Waka’s rough weekend didn’t stop him from celebrating 4/2o right. He was sure to let the world know he was still planning to celebrate the holy day of cannabis in a blaze of smoke.
There were even reports that he was seen at an airport in Washington, D.C. eating what could have been even more edibles.
To be fair, it’s not all that surprising that edibles knocked Waka on his ass. They’re actually kind of known for doing that.
The reason why edibles can deliver such powerful highs has to do with the way THC hits the bloodstream.
When you smoke, the THC goes into your bloodstream quickly. Once it’s there it starts doing its magic.
But when you’re ingesting cannabis by eating it, the THC travels a slightly different route.
Cannabis that’s been eaten is first processed by the liver before entering the bloodstream. That means that it hits you when it gets to your liver then again when it gets into your blood.
The tricky part is that it takes longer to get high from edibles. Because of that, it’s really easy to keep on eating, assuming that you just haven’t had enough. By the time the high kicks in, you’ve downed a whole batch of brownies and are well on your way to space walking.Sounds like that’s exactly what happened to our friend Waka Flocka Flame.
