Death by marijuana? Reaction to Gemma Moss' "cannabis poisoning" postmortem

International media are reporting that the Oct. 28, 2013 death of 31-year-old Gemma Moss of Boscombe, England, was a result of “cannabis poisoning.”

The controversial announcement would make Moss — who is purported to have smoked half a joint before going to bed the night of her death — the first fatality of marijuana in Britain, the agencies said.

The BBC and the Daily Mail among others are reporting that after three months of “extensive” tests, authorities are saying Moss died of marijuana toxicity and “it is thought she may have suffered a cardiac arrest triggered by the drug,” according to the BBC.
