Fake Pot Causes Third Bleeding Death In Illinois-teaser
Synthetic marijuana left one more person dead in Illinois, bringing the recent death toll to three.
At least 100 people have been left with severe bleeding amid the fake marijuana epidemic.
“Each day we’ve seen the number of cases rise,” said the director of the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Nirav D. Shah in a statement.
Shah added: "Synthetic cannabinoids are unsafe. They are not regulated and people don’t know what chemicals may be in them, like rat poison. While efforts are underway to get the contaminated drugs out of circulation, it’s possible they could re-emerge. We urge people not to use synthetic cannabinoids now or ever."
