Only four days after Measure 91 passed, Oregon is reconsidering itâ€™s decision to legalize recreational marijuana.
According to a report in the The Oregonion, 46 people were killed across the state since weed became legal earlier this week. Reports from MSNBC indicate there has also been 23 deaths in Alaska, and a a staggering 89 in Washington DC.
Several more marijuana victims are clinging onto life in local emergency rooms and are not expected to survive.
â€œItâ€™s complete chaos here, Iâ€™ve never seen anything like itâ€ says Dr. Steve Perkins, chief of surgery at Riverbend Hospital in Springfield. â€œIâ€™ve put six college students in body bags since before noon, and more are arriving every minute. One young man came in extremely hungry and even started gnawing on his arm, until he collapsed in the emergency room.â€
Well, I guess we learned our lesson the hard way.
