Police report: Teens falls to death in Denver after eating marijuana cookie
A Wyoming college student visiting Denver ate a marijuana cookie with some friends as they watched movies inside a Holiday Inn hotel room.
The $10, lemon-poppy seed cookie’s wrapper said it had “65 milligrams THC,” marijuana’s key ingredient. The dispensary clerk had told the group of four friends to cut the cookie into six pieces and eat one at a time, one of the friends told police. Each of them bought one cookie.
They complied with the instructions, but nothing hit them. Experts have said it’s common for edibles to produce a delayed high.
Levy Thamba, 19, went ahead and ate a full cookie. While his friends dealt with some stomach sickness, he started speaking in French, acting strangely and tossing furniture. He later ran out of the room and fell to his death from a fourth-floor balcony onto the lobby floor.
