wasted

other word formation type conversion
a state of being deeply intoxicated, far beyond one's limit.
 
It was coined by American rapper Gucci Mane. A person who is described as being “wasted” has had entirely too many drinks, and is now knocking on the doors of extreme sickness, and other health issues. This is a term that is heavily used by people in pop culture and American youth.
Etymology : Conversion from verb “to waste” plus the affix of ed, which does not convey typical meaning of being in the past, but more shows a continuance of the current state.
