Intravenous Marijuana Syndrome is a distinct short-term clinical syndrome related to the IV injection of boiled cannabis broth, which had been filtered through a cotton cloth. The syndrome has at least 25 known cases in the English language literature, all prior to 1983.[1]

It is postulated that contamination, perhaps from the cotton used to strain the liquid of the broth or from particulate plant matter getting through the straining method, could be cause for the cases of illnesses.[1]
