Don't share joints: health authorities
April 7, 2005
canada.com

VANCOUVER -- Vancouver health authorities are warning people against sharing marijuana joints after two people died of meningococcal infections.

Dr. Patricia Daly of the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority says sharing joints exposes people to saliva than can contain dangerous bacteria.

The health authority has had five cases of meningococcal disease since last November and four of the five people involved regularly smoked and shared pot.

Two died as a result of their infections.

Dr. Daly says people should either stop sharing joints or get vaccinated.

Meningococcal bacteria can be also be spread by sharing cigarettes, drinks, kissing or other contact with another person's saliva.

Some of the symptoms of meningococcal infection are a high fever, headache and stiff neck.

So never share your joint, never kiss someone... right.

you know, as fucked up as this may sound to you, a kid at my old high school died of meningitis after he smoked with someone else that had it. The only people that really knew were his real friends, everyone else thought he got it from something else. Why they singled out marijuana users here, its not up to me to say. It should say: "Don't share weed when you have meningitis, smoke your own."

This is an honest risk if menengitis is going around. If you're at a big party, and joints are getting passed around in huge groups, then it's something to look out for. The Vancouver health authorities aren't saying not to smoke pot, they're just saying to be careful about a potentially lethal disease.
