How stupid is EPA air pollution science? (Part 3)

Ever smoked a joint?

A new report claims that 12.5% of the adult U.S. population tried marijuana in 2013.

The average U.S. resident inhales about 200 millionths of a gram of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) each day.

EPA claims that there is no safe exposure to PM2.5 and that any exposure to PM2.5 can result in death within hours of inhalation.

Someone who smokes a marijuana joint will inhale as much as 180,000 millions of a gram over a period of about 10 minutes.

So this means that a joint smoker will inhale about 2.5 years worth of PM2.5 in 10 minutes.

Ever seen anyone smoke a joint and drop dead? With 12.5% of the population trying marijuana, it must certainly happen to someone — if what EPA claimed were true, right?

But the fact is no one dies from smoking one or even multiple joints. Even for the heaviest dope smokers, sudden death is not a reported health effect.

Consider that many elderly and infirm people (folks who EPA claims are particularly vulnerable to PM2.5) use marijuana medicinally. Any deaths? No.

That’s how stupid EPA’s air quality “science” is.
