102 Synthetic Marijuana Overdoses in 3 Days in 1 Pennsylvania County

Posted 11:58 am, July 14, 2017, by CNN Wire,

Doctors warn about the dangers of synthetic marijuana.

LANCASTER COUNTY — One hundred and two people in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, overdosed on synthetic marijuana in three days, according to C. Robert May, director of Lancaster Emergency Medical Services. None of the overdoses were fatal.

“Heroin is normally the issue but in the last week there’s been an overdose of synthetic marijuana,” also known as K2, May told CNN. “The assumption is that heroin is not readily available, so people are turning to K2.”

The treatment of the overdose patients took place between the morning of July 7 through the morning of July 10. More overdoses followed — by the following Friday, July 14, a total of 158 overdose patients were involved in emergency response calls.

According to May, some calls involve two to four patients at once, with a few patients repeating in a span of a few hours.

“This past weekend we responded to one patient nine times in 24 hours,” May said.

In the past six months in Lancaster County, heroin overdoses were averaging eight a day, May said. Over the last week, emergency services responded to 25 synthetic marijuana overdoses a day — about one an hour — in public bathrooms, parking lots, residential homes, on the street and in the parks.  Read more...

yep, this proves marijuana is safer than alcohol.

Maybe, just maybe people should smoke the real stuff if they are going to smoke. Pretty sure that might be a safer alternative. Or just smarten up, be kind to your body and stop doing drugs all together. People are responsible for their own choices, do bad drugs and pay the price!

Marijuana acts just like drinking does!! It will make you drive slow or too fast! It will make you eat a lot!! It will make you think someone is watching you or listening to what you are saying!! It will make you depressed or make you laugh a lot!! So don't try and say it doesn't effect you, cause it sure does!!

Post 9.18, finally someone with the same opinion as mine. The answer is always that it doesn't affect or alter the users brain, if that were so why would these drug users Use? You hear it over and over, not a mind alternating drug, no danger of overuse or no problem driving because there is no affect on the Brain! Thank you 9.18, finally someone with some common sense!

I use weed everyday and have for about 5 years. I have a good full time job that I go to everyday. The reason I started using weed was I had some medical problem and was prescribed vicoden which I only used when I needed it not how the doctor told me to use it which was every 4 hours for pain I didn't use that much I used less. After telling the doctor many times he was prescribing me to much he kept on telling me to take them as he recommended. I did not overtake or abuse them. The doctors office pissed tested me and found I had to little in my system and pulled the prescription completely. This is why I use weed not this synthetic crap that is chemicals. So 11:09 take my word for it weed is safe yes it does alter the mind alittle but way safer then synthetic crap and even booze.
