Study: Edible marijuana may pose health risk

A new study shows that edible marijuana may pose a special risk.

The research was conducted at a Denver hospital, where recreational cannabis is legal.

They found that there was a three-fold increase in emergency room visits due to edible marijuana.

While inhaled marijuana caused the most severe problems, researchers found that marijuana-infused foods and candies also led to trouble.

Patients went to the ER with symptoms such as repeated vomiting, racing hearts, and psychotic episodes.
