What happened when a 70-year-old patient had a marijuana lollipop to aid sleep?

Rather than facilitating a restful night, the lolly brought on MI-inducing hallucinations

An elderly man with a history of coronary artery disease got more bang from a marijuana lollipop than he was expecting when the ensuing hallucinations lead to a myocardial infarction.

The 70-year-old Canadian was walloped by confectionary containing 90mg of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), nearly 13 times the amount found in an average joint (7mg), his doctors reported in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology.
