Who says that marijuana can’t kill you?

man changing a flat tire choked to death on a bag of marijuana he stuffed down his throat in an apparent attempt to hide it from police who stopped to help him early today.

Cpl. Frank Lott of the Corinth Police Department said officers had no idea Nickolas Sandoval, 24, of Ponder, had drugs when they spotted him on Interstate 35E in Corinth, about 45 miles northeast of Fort Worth.

“Officers went from ‘Oh, hey, here is someone with a flat tire’ to ‘Hey, this guy is choking,’” Lott told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram for its online edition today.

Officers noticed a plastic bag lodged in the man’s throat, but it was too far down for them to extract. They kept trying to dislodge it until an ambulance arrived, and medical personnel were able to remove it, Lott said.

Sandoval was pronounced dead at Denton Regional Medical Center about 3:30 a.m., said Linda Anderson, a spokeswoman for the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office. The cause of death has been ruled as “asphyxiation due to aspiration of plastic bag,” she said.

See, if he’d have stuck it up his ass he just would have been extremely constipated.
