Authorities are looking into why Caitlyn Kovacs passed out at a fraternity house at Rutgers University in New Jersey.

Kovacs, 19, died at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at 3:19 a.m., less than a half hour after friends noticed she “appeared to be in distress,” said New Brunswick prosecutor Andrew Carey, who has not filed charges, pending an autopsy, according to

Still, cops launched an investigation after hospital officials notified them that initial findings showed the death may have been alcohol-related, authorities said…

Kovacs was a sophomore majoring in animal sciences at the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, Rutgers said. The Monmouth Junction, N.J., resident and South Brunswick High School graduate was at a small gathering at the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity house on campus, the student-run Daily Targum reported.[su_csky_ad]

    Yesterday I read an article stating there have been 6 alcohol related deaths of college freshman since the beginning of the school year. This would be 7.

      Alcohol is a drug. An overdose can lead to fatal poisoning within 24 hours.

      Marijuana is a drug. No matter how much you consume, it will take years, if not decades before it impacts your health, if ever.

      The first drug is legal. The second is not.

      That reality is something that I will never understand.

        Simple answer the distillers make a fortune on the sale of beer and alcohol. The alcohol industry sales was $47.3 Billion in 2013.

        Unfortunately the sales of marijuana is just beginning and will hopefully rise.

        The huge sales also results in weak laws regarding serving booze, driving while intoxicated, etc. You can bet the distillers are buying up tracts of land to get in on pot growth, sales, etc. Imagine when you buy a 30 pack of Bud you will get a coin printed on the box. Collect 10 coins get a baggie of BUD (get the connection) at their local beer/grass outlet. They already have the best tag line which is bi: This Bud’s for You!
