Woman Eats Pot Brownie Then Jumps Off Inner Sunset Balcony

Coming down hard -- literally -- after a bad high
  • Coming down hard -- literally -- after a bad high

Here's a new antidrug advertisement.

A woman living in the Inner Sunset thought it was a good idea to devour some pot brownies and then thought it was an even better idea to jump off her balcony.

It started at about 7 p.m., when the 31-year-old woman scoffed pot brownies with friends at her house on the 1400 block of Seventh Avenue. 

Five hours passed, and the woman quietly stepped out to her third-floor balcony and jumped.

The woman took a hard landing and quickly taken to San Francisco General Hospital with broken bones.

So we had to ask, was it a bad batch?

"She came down hard from a bad high," said Police Captain Denis O'Leary. "I haven't had someone freak out on drugs like that in a long time, like since the '80s when there would be a bad batch of LSD and you'd see people freaking out in the neighborhood."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
