Contrary to popular belief, marijuana does kill. In our monitoring of news stories around the U.S., we find 290 child deaths directly related to adult marijuana use. All of them happened since the vote to legalize pot in late 2012. The fact sheet below presents them by state and secondary cause of death. We will continue to update as more deaths are reported. Please share on Facebook and Twitter.
We are happy to give anyone media outlet the specific information about these deaths in the news. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, for that information.
