Marijuana Wax Just as Dangerous as Heroin

Basically what we did is change the definition of overdose to having any reaction at all to a substance.

In the recent wake of two reported overdoses on marijuana wax and a house fire attributed to the manufacture of the substance there has been a lot of attention on this new form of drug that has been around in some form or another since 10,000 BC. While some say it's impossible to overdose on a marijuana product, after a Government endorsed study which was backed by alcohol and pharmaceutical lobbies it shows that wax is just as likely to cause an overdose as heroin. Law Enforcement has applauded the study. "Basically what we did is change the definition of overdose to having any reaction at all to a substance. So, lets say you're usually shy but can work up the courage to go up to a member the opposite sex after having a few drinks, you're technically overdosing on alcohol," said Jeffery Unger director of Megapharma labs. "Likewise, if you feel some paranoia or really like certain types of music while smoking marijuana products, you're also overdosing. By our research, nearly everyone overdoses every time," said Unger. "While some just relaxed and realized that what they had consumed wasn't going to kill them, they seemed to work out of the overdose quite well. Others started flipping out and acting like weird little bitches tripping out. It's called 'being stoned out of your mind' for a reason." Unger stated that only medications prescribed by a doctor that are legal in every state do not cause overdoses unless if someone actually has a life threatening physical reaction. When we asked Unger about the Center for Disease Control Prevention's statistic the that pharmaceutical drugs killed around 23,000 people last year and asked how many have died from wax, he declined to answer.
