How many people have died from marijuana?

Relatively few. There have been some case reports of deaths in which marijuana use was involved, however it is difficult to tally a precise number until more cohesive efforts towards surveilling cannabis-related ER visits are in place to better assess the impact of the drug on morbidity/mortality. More study is absolutely warranted to better tease out the potentially-confounding influence of polysubstance use as well as pre-existing health risks on these isolated cases.
