Fans mourn the loss of Chumlee Russell who died Monday evening of a marijuana overdose.

LAS VEGAS — In what may come to be a medical landmark, “Chumlee” Russell of Pawn Stars fame died from a marijuana overdose Monday night and was found by friend “Big Hoss” Harrison on Tuesday morning. Earlier this year, “Chumlee” was arrested with seven pounds of marijuana which he asserted were all for personal use.

According to Dr. Angstrom H. Troubador, “The only possible way he could have died from a marijuana overdose without first clogging his lungs with soot is through the use of vaporizers. Reportedly, Chumlee had rigged up to 90 vaporizers into one tube and had a team of groupies constantly loading them up with the stickiest and most potent of marijuana available on the market.”

Fans and family mourn the loss of “Chumlee” and have taken the opportunity to speak out against drug abuse. “To die like that, it’s just a shame,” said Rick Harrison, manager of the world famous Gold and Silver Pawn Shop, as he teared up. “It’s just a shame to lose such a fun guy as Chum. Rest in peace, buddy.”

      This Story is NOT funny!!! It’s wrong, twisted, sick, and DISTURBING!!! To think that people actually find this sort of thing funny and amusing is truly sad. You cannot die from a marijuana “overdose”. And, as for whoever came up with this garbage, I hope Chumlee sues you for everything you’re worth! ( And, based on this “article”, that probably isn’t very much!!!)

    Impossible to OD on weed even with his vapo setup which i doubt he had. he would have to smoke all 7 lb in one hit to even kill himself and at the point its not the weed that kills him its is Carbon Monoxide poisoning. lets say no CO in present, he would go into a marijuana coma, which is not harmful, where the CB receptors are in the brain they do not interfere with any major organs function. Say Hard drugs like crack, coke, H, meth,ect… those chems all go to the part of you brain that is responsible for all the major organs functions, this is why there are so many OD on hard drugs. marijuana Chance of Overdose 0:0

    Personally, I don’t believe a person CAN overdose on pot (personal experience).
    I saw a story where Chumlee was busted with 7lbs. of pot. Don’t know if its true (?).
    I would encourage keeping an eye on what happens to this guy.Looks
    (to me) like he’s pissed someone off.

    you’re stupid he did not die!!!!!!!! pretty sure you need to do some research before posting some shit like you just did!!! hope chumlee sues your asses!!!!!!!! its called PLAGERISM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Not Dee

      Though this is fake, Dee… PLAGERISM (correctly spelled “plagiarism”) is defined as:
      1. an act or instance of using or closely imitating the language and thoughts of another author without authorization and the representation of that author’s work as one’s own, as by not crediting the original author: It is said that he plagiarized Thoreau’s plagiarism of a line written by Montaigne. Synonyms: appropriation, infringement, piracy, counterfeiting; theft, borrowing, cribbing, passing off.
      2. a piece of writing or other work reflecting such unauthorized use or imitation: “These two manuscripts are clearly plagiarisms,” the editor said, tossing them angrily on the floor.

      Has nothing to do with this writing. The closest that this could be considered is “Slander” which is a “Malicious, false, and defamatory report”. However, since this report is only false and not malicious/defamatory as well, it probably wouldn’t qualify under this either.

      Before you accuse someone of being “stupid”, you may want to use a dictionary before posting something that could indicate that you don’t know the difference.
