[Postmortem detection of hemp intoxication].


PMID 14584408

Abstract

The diagnostic tools applicable to the forensic medical expertise of cadavers in cannabinoid intoxication (CI) were evaluated. Histochemistry with incubation of stable blue "B" (SBB) were used for the detection of cannabinoids in the bronchi and lungs. Hyperemia and capillarostasis in the mucous tunics of the mouth and stomach as well as hyperemia and edema in the lungs and brain were histochemically detected in CI. The histochemical activity of aldehyde dehydrogenase (AlDG) was most essentially decreasing in the adrenal glands and brain of younger persons. The SBB reaction in the bronchial and alveolar epithelia was positive in 85% of cases. A high proof value of the CI diagnostics was pointed out in cadaver expertise.
