In Maureen Dowd’s latest column for the New York Times, she describes her scary experience eating a pot candy bar while reporting on legalized marijuana in Colorado.
She sat in a Denver hotel room experimenting with the legalized edible, “nibbling” on some of the chocolate-flavored bar.
“For an hour, I felt nothing […] But then I felt a scary shudder go through my body and brain. I barely made it from the desk to the bed, where I lay curled up in a hallucinatory state for the next eight hours,” Dowd said.
She goes on to explain how her paranoia deepened, saying the high wore off “distressingly slowly.”
“I had been convinced that I had died and no one was telling me,” Dowd said.
