First Pot-Related Death Occurs in Colorado

A marijuana concentration of 7.2 nanograms of active THC per milliliter in his blood

Colorado’s first death from pot use has occurred. The Denver Post reports,

Levy Thamba, a 19-year-old student at Northwest College in Powell, Wyo., who was also known as Levi Thamba Pongi, fell to his death last month from the balcony of a Holiday Inn in northeast Denver. On Wednesday, the Denver coroner said Thamba's death was caused by "multiple injuries due to a fall from height."

The coroner has listed “marijuana intoxication” as one of the contributing factors that resulted in Thamba’s death. 

Fox31 Denver writes that Thamba had

a marijuana concentration of 7.2 nanograms of active THC per milliliter in his blood, the coroner’s report said. The state limit for impaired driving cases is 5 nanograms per milliliter.
