The Herald reports:
Police are investigating the death of a woman who is believed to have smoked synthetic cannabis.
Acting Detective Inspector Peter Florence said police were investigating the death of a 31-year-old woman who was found dead at an address in Kelston last night.
Police believe the woman may have been smoking synthetic cannabis a short time before her death, however, there may have been other contributing factors, he said.
The death has been referred to the Coroner who will ultimately determine the cause.
It is the ninth death linked to synthetic cannabis in Auckland this month.
So as I understand it:
- Synthetic cannabis: 9 dead in one city in one month
- Actual cannabis: 0 dead in all of New Zealand in 30 years
So that prohibition is working well eh.
