The satirical website, The Daily Currant, is having some fun with Colorado and its new marijuana law. (Honestly, who isn’t?)

Its headline on Jan. 2: Marijuana Overdoses Kill 37 in Colorado On First Day of Legalization.

The fake story cites a report by the closed Rocky Mountain News.

Here is a snippet of the story:

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

“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.”
