weed not matter how you get it into your system doesn't cause problems like that. its herbal, even if its illegal and has a very short half life and its effects are over within hours. I don't understand how one would accidentally ingest this. I personally think he's probably "accidentally" ingesting something else too. take him to the doctor. no one is going to get in trouble for weed ingestion unless its being ingested in front of a doctor or cop. he could have something else going on medically, but, its not the pot he ate.

Raw cannabis wouldn't cause any issues other than maybe an upset stomach for a few hours - the fun chemicals aren't activated unless the material is heated. Maybe he worked himself up expecting a reaction after learning what he ingested. Odd to accidentally injest that much raw, it's small, but large enough to smell or taste I'd think.
