The God-given plant cannabis has never killed a person; but our prohibition of it has just taken another life (May 24, "Stewart hanged himself with bedsheet, authorities say").
Humans friended cannabis millennia ago. Were there a downside, it would be well known by now. For a downside, our American prohibitionists have to gin up the wildest stuff. Our political leaders are still feeling too vulnerable to charges of being soft on drugs.
Stewart and Francom share a cell in purgatory, awaiting the end of cannabis prohibition hereabouts. If only that could make any sense of their deaths.
