Maybe we can quibble over the amount but Trepidity's solution seems solid. How about the rate being something on the order of 30% above the prevailing market wage? See with 30% above prevailing market rate, the price keeps going up... Probably should add something to the effect of max hours allowed to work and salary must always remain 30% above prevailing market rate.

Well, then I'll count you on the side that argues that one can't OD on it.

If we go down the path you are suggesting as a definition of OD then one could OD on eating lettuce. How about we agree to stick to the classical definition unless there is a clear and compelling reason for doing otherwise?

marijuana poisoning? Is there such a thing? Definitely not by smoking, you'd pass out before you could, so maybe from ingestion? Would it be similar to leaf poisoning from eating too many tree leaves?
Seriously though, from what I know, you can OD on it if you eat it (properly prepared) due to the delay time from ingestion to onset of symptoms. What happens is people don't know that it is coming and so keep eating the brownies and end up eating way too many. I have not heard of this actually happening but theoretically it is possible.
