PROPAGANDA? “Marijuana Overdoses Kill 37 in Colorado On First Day of Legalization”


1of10boyz:

Not sure if I believe this or not. Seems more like an Onion story to me. Haven’t seen any news source mentioning this either.

Originally posted on Rack Em Up:

Colorado is reconsidering its decision to legalize recreational pot following the deaths of dozens due to marijuana overdoses.
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?”

  1. Absolutely phony!

    The article is NOT from the venerable Rocky Mountain News, but from the Daily Current, a satirical online publication which, like The Onion, NEVER publishes truth. That’s why it’s called sarcasm!

    • Too bad it isn’t getting better distribution. The Onion has some of the funniest stories, Going to have to add the Daily Current to my list of websites to visit on occasion.
