death after eating a marijuana cookie his friend legally purchased at a marijuana dispensary in Colorado.
Autopsy report indicates marijuana intoxication as a “significant contributing factor”
in the death of 19-year-old Levy Thamba Pongi who is a native of the Republic of Congo. Thamba jumped to his death from a motel balcony on March 11.
Thamba’s friend told investigators, “that Pongi ate the cookie and ‘exhibited hostile
behavior’ that included pulling things off walls and speaking erratically, the
autopsy report said.”
“It marked the first time the Denver medical examiner’s office has listed a marijuana edible as a contributor to a death, said Michelle Weiss-Samaras, a spokeswoman for the office.”
