IDPH Issues Warning About Synthetic Cannabinoids | IDPH

Additional cases have been reported across the state. Each case so far has resulted in hospitalizations, with symptoms including coughing up blood, blood in the urine, severe bloody noses, and bleeding gums.

It is also updated that the people are rushing towards the emergency rooms in the hospital to get the treatment for this severe bleeding.

Health officials in IL are warning people that synthetic marijuana can cause bleeding from the ears and eyes, according to news reports. Those who have been hospitalized obtained the products in convenience stores, from dealers and friends, she said.

Health officials reported 22 known people who experienced the symptom since March 7, and they continue to track the situation, Arnold said.

Fed raises key rate, predicts 2 more hikes
Economists are wondering whether faster economic growth might cause the Fed to pick up the pace of its rate hikes. A 10-year rate at 2.91 percent is "seriously mispriced given the Fed's dot plot forecast", Brusuelas said.

IL health officials are advising anyone experiencing unexplained bleeding after using synthetic pot to go to the nearest emergency room. They can contain a variety of chemicals, and users often don't know what those are, such as rat poison. Researches from universities in the Netherlands and Germany found that users of synthetic marijuana were more likely to feel incapacitated, compared with regular weed, even if the high was relatively similar. Cannabinoids are sometimes sprayed on plant material for smoking, or are sold as liquids to be vaporized and inhaled in e-cigarettes and other devices, the health department's warning said. They also warn that any recently purchased fake weed products should not be used as the specific brands causing the unusual symptoms have not been identified.

Health officials have issued a warning against synthetic marijuana after users experienced unsafe effects.

"They are not safe and may affect the brain much more powerfully than marijuana", according to the Illinois Department of Public Health, which encouraged people not to use synthetic marijuana products that were bought over the past month.

IDPH reports, "Anyone who has a reaction to synthetic cannabinoids should call 911 or have someone take them to the emergency department immediately".
