Maureen Dowd, a columnist for the New York Times, told a terrifying story of eating a marijuana-infused candy bar. She was in Denver, Colorado reporting on legalized marijuana.
“’For an hour, I felt nothing […] But then I felt a scary shudder go through my body and brain. I barely made it from the desk to the bed, where I lay curled up in a hallucinatory site for the next eight hours,’ Dowd said.”
“She goes on to explain how her paranoia deepened, saying the high wore off ‘distressingly slowly.’”
“’I had been convinced that I had died and no one was telling me,” Dowd said.”
