Lethal Dose of LSD?
Humboldt County coroner Frank Jager says the man who died in police custody on August 9, had levels of LSD “10 times higher than what’s considered potentially toxic” according to the toxicology report.
The final word on the cause of death of Martin Cotton has yet to be released.
The flimsy wording of the Times-Standard breaking report got us googling. Can someone overdose on LSD and die from nothing more than the drug alone? Some studies show there is no known lethal dose of “acid.” People might do crazy stuff that results in death while under its influence, but that’s another story.
It’s unlikely that Cotton died simply from ingesting LSD.
