What a year of legal pot in Colorado looks like

Watch what happens when this older couple consumes 110 mg of THC

Last year, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd claimed she thought she was going to die after she ate a pot candy bar in her Denver hotel room. The incident highlighted Colorado’s on-going debate about regulating the amount of THC—the ingredient responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive effects—in all cannabis-laced edibles.

Colorado now has a 100 mg THC cap per unit on all edibles, with 5 mg being the recommended dose.

We decided to conduct our own, unscientific test about the effects of THC levels found in edibles using one, marijuana-friendly couple. We wondered, does consuming an entire pot candy bar in fact produce the same effects that Dowd experienced last year?

Watch the clip above to find out what happens when they eat a combined 110 mg of THC.
