A 17-year-old died in Indiana after suffering complications from prolonged use of marijuana as doctors say they’ve seen increase in ailments associated with using more potent strains of the drug.

Brian Smith Jr. died in October 2018 from dehydration as a result of cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome (CHS), according to a March autopsy report.

Brian had first gone to the hospital with his mother Regina Denney to complain about severe vomiting and abdominal pain.

He had been losing weight in the months leading up to his death but continued smoking, even after he was told the cannabis may be the root cause.
