If you read the news nowadays then you would probably believe that gun homicides are the leading cause of injury death in the country. But you’d be wrong because as CNSNews.com pointed out using the latest data from the Drug Enforcement Agency, drug overdoses account for more injury deaths than car crashes or firearms.

The DEA’s report shows that 46,471 people in the United States died from drug overdoses in 2013 and more than half of those deaths were caused by heroin and prescription painkillers. This is compared to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention count of 35,369 who died in motor vehicle crashes and 33,636 who died from firearms.

"Marijuana concentrates", and they were quoting the DEA. Marijuana concentrates is a super high, especially if abused. There is, therefore, the "potential" for addiction, hence their concern.
