Marijuana Overdoses Kill 37 in Colorado On First Day of Legalization

Quote:
According to a report in the Rocky Mountain News, 37 people were killed across the state on January 1st, the first day the drug became legal for all adults to purchase. Several more are clinging onto life in local emergency rooms and are not expected to survive.

"It's complete chaos here," says Dr. Jack Shepard, chief of surgery at St. Luke's Medical Center in Denver, "I've put five college students in body bags since breakfast and more are arriving every minute.

"We are seeing cardiac arrests, hypospadias, acquired trimethylaminuria and multiple organ failures. By next week the death toll could go as high as 200, maybe 300. Someone needs to step in and stop this madness. My god, why did we legalize marijuana? What were we thinking?"

This story is actually being circulated as true in some circles...

The Onion would be proud.

Unless you're smoking like a thousand joints at once, its almost impossible to over dose on marijuana.

For me it was the mention of the Rocky Mountain News, a newspaper that went out of business a few years ago.

Before I even entered this thread my thoughts were ....."Damn, capitalism is already poisoning weed with additives". Glad that's not the case, at least for now.

Give it time. Same thing big tobacco did to cigarettes will happen to pot.

I look forward to hearing the future story of the Jeffrey Wigand of the maurajuana industry.

Stay on topic damn you. As long as the thread is about marijuana use in Colorado, this one provides a better extension.

I have been avoiding the bulk of television lately, but some of you might pick up on this reference
One of the those victims was 29-year-old Jesse Bruce Pinkman, a former methamphetamine dealer from Albuquerque who had recently moved to Boulder to establish a legal marijuana dispensary.
What is it about news sites named for produce? And why do we not have a pool going on how long it is before NewsCorp starts regurgitating this as fact?

What's sad is that this isn't any more ridiculous than some of the things she has actually said!

I don't think FOX has bitten yet but Drudge and Breitbart have.

Thank you for this. I've posted this to troll my friends and family on Facebook the instant after I finished reading it.

"THIS IS TOTAL BS! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THIS STUFF! IT'S A PARODY SITE FOR ***** SAKE"!

"No, man. It's the truth. More proof of your president Hussein Obama's socialist/mooslish agenda coming to pass. You left-wings *******s types can deny reality all you want, but it's real, and it's happening".

edit: bonus points, cuz I've now got people throwing Snopes at me!

The worst thing is, everyone I've got on Facebook should know better, but they just can't resist taking the bait. I mean it never fails...

I see people post DailyCurrent articles all the time on my Facebook and then tell me I'm wrong when I tell them its a satire site.

It's usually the same idiots that post the "Obama is giving free gas to poor neighborhoods" (from Daily Currant) article over and over.
