Being wasted is a term that is used when the player has run out of health. Being wasted is opposite of being busted, which only happens when the police catch the player and arrest him. The player can be wasted in various causes, which can be seen below. When the player is wasted, they will respawn at a hospital. The re-spawning varies on the closest hospital that the player was near prior to being wasted. Like being busted, the player will lose all their weapons and some cash.
