Marijuana Candy Blamed for Suicide

Friday, 27 Mar 2015 12:26 PM


Luke Goodman committed suicide last weekend, and his mother blames his death on an overdose of marijuana candies. "It was completely a reaction to the drugs," Kim Goodman told CBS4 in Denver, Colorado.

The death of 23-year-old Goodman was the third Colorado death linked to edible marijuana.
Goodman was on a ski vacation with his family when he and cousin Caleb Fowler traveled from Keystone to Silverthorne and bought $78 worth of various types of marijuana, including edibles.

Fowler said Goodman began eating marijuana infused candies. Each piece contained the maximum of 10 mg of marijuana's active ingredient, the amount recommended.

When he didn't get an immediate reaction, he kept eating the candy.

Fowler told CBS4 that Goodman ate five pieces of the candy — five times the recommended amount. Neither read the warning on the package which said that the intoxicating effects could be delayed by two hours or more.

Within hours, Goodman was incoherent. "It was almost like something else was speaking through him," Fowler said.

Later in the evening, Goodman got a handgun he used for protection and shot himself.

The suicide, says Goodman's mom, was completely out of character. "There was no depression or anything that would leave us being concerned."

Fowler agrees that marijuana was the reason Goodman committed suicide. "He was the happiest guy in the world. He had everything going for him."
