I keep my marijuana stashed away in a medication lock box.  The box is made of cheap smashable plastic and has a teeny combination lock.

It’s cute, but obviously, my lockbox isn’t an anti-theft device.

I want to make it clear.  I don’t keep my marijuana locked up because I’m concerned about my kids’ safety.

I actually feel safer with marijuana replacing the dangerous narcotics I used to have laying around.

When I was taking opiates & valium, I worried about safety.  An accidental overdose of those medications can be fatal.

But with medical marijuana, I don’t worry about fatal overdoses.

No one has ever died from a marijuana overdose.

 

The purpose of the lock box is to add a level of seriousness to an issue some are still casual about.

In actuality, Grandma’s pumpkin pie is significantly more dangerous than my weed.

The Deadly Ingredient You Don’t Realize Is Lethal.

 

Nutmeg can be deadly, and pumpkin pie is commonly made with nutmeg.  One tablespoon of nutmeg can kill an adult male.

 

Surprised? I was. It’s a scary quality for a spice sitting on most shelves.

 

When I delved in further, I discovered that nutmeg has a long, sordid history.  It’s been used to induce abortions and has been abused for its hallucinogenic effects.

 


Fantasy Cards

 

One of the famous references to nutmeg is Malcolm X’s description of nutmeg abuse in prison.  In fact, this NY Times article references “a study in California…(that found) 72.3 percent of the poisoning cases involved intentional use.”

Please DO NOT try it.

 

Not only can too much nutmeg kill you, but nutmeg poisoning is described as a horrifically unpleasant experience.

 

Nutmeg poisoning can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, decreased cognition, disorientation, coma, nerve damage, hearing damage, and irregular heart rhythms. It’s been compared to a hangover that lasts for days.

 

Nutmeg is so lethal that American Scientist lists it as a more dangerous substance than MMDA, cocaine, and alcohol.
And unfortunately, accidental nutmeg poisonings do happen.

 

Hopefully, Grandma’s eyesight is keen and her measuring tools accurate, otherwise her pumpkin pie could pack a lethal punch.

Maybe nutmeg move to my medicine lock box?

 

But, before you strip your spice rack, or swear off Thanksgiving dessert, understand this: When used carefully, nutmeg is perfectly safe. It may even be beneficial when used in moderation. Incidentally, so is my weed.
