A third person who experienced severe bleeding after using synthetic marijuana has died in Illinois, health officials confirmed.
There are now 107 people in central Illinois and the Chicago area who experienced severe bleeding after using the synthetic pot, often called spice, K2 or fake weed, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health.
Each day weve seen the number of cases rise, said director of the IDPH Nirav D. Shah, M.D., J.D. "Synthetic cannabinoids are unsafe. They are not regulated and people dont know what chemicals may be in them, like rat poison. While efforts are underway to get the contaminated drugs out of circulation, its possible they could re-emerge. We urge people not to use synthetic cannabinoids now or ever."
This death comes after three Chicago convenience store clerks were charged earlier this the month for allegedly selling the synthetic cannabinoids laced with the known rodent poison, according to police.

Sounds like it’s a bit like playing Russian Roulette when you try synthetic drugs.
I heard about this, our state outlawed this stuff about 4 years ago.
Sounds like coumadin is in there.

Assured self destruction.
Drugs are a gateway for evil to enter your life
Whoever sold this deserves a public execution.
Illinois should just ban synthetic pot, like they do guns, and the problem will go away. Easy peasy!
Once an individual decides to pollute their body with foreign substances that were not in the evolutionary experience, it is no shock that the outcomes are bad. For instance human beings did not evolve with chronic levels of carbon monoxide in their blood. But that is exactly what happens when people inhale burning products on a regular basis. The health consequences such as atherosclerosis, heart attack cancers follow. The human brain is 90% phospholipid. It is unknown just how those fats up there churn around to allow humans the higher intellectual functions that distinguish themselves from other species. Again when an individual permeates the brain with foreign substances such as illegal drugs , alcohol or other substances that permeate the blood brain barrier, the results ought to surprise no one. Sorry but there is a price to pay for hedonistic debauchery.
Illinois and Chicago continue to go to “POT”. /sarc but the truth.

Obviously, this is the work of the nefarious Assad.
Thinning the herd. Only problem is that when ‘RATS are deceased, their voting rate goes way up.
Well then, that settles it. We have to raze Chicago!
ban guns and no one will get shot anymore, right?
Not to worry. The dead will still be voting Democrat for years to come.
Well, it’s not like we are loosing a useful segment of society.
Yup, all the things that we were warned about that the commies were trying to place in America to take us down is happening before our eyes. Free sex, drugs, amoral behavior etc. The dark powers are busy.
