IL warns users of synthetic pot

"They are not safe and may affect the brain much more powerfully than marijuana", according to the IDPH, which urged people not to use synthetic cannabinoids that were bought over the past month.

In the report, the agency included a comprehensive breakdown of geographic locations that have reported the issue, including eight cases in Chicago, four in Cook County, and one each in Will, DuPage, Kane and McLean counties.

"Synthetic cannabinoids are unsafe". Each of those cases has required hospital visits with symptoms like coughing up blood, blood in urine, severe bloody nose, and/or bleeding gums.

So far in IL, 38 people have experience severe bleeding issues after consuming synthetic cannabis. They are also sold on the street, she said, and those experiencing the bleeding said they obtained the products in convenience stores and from dealers and friends.

Leikin said to the TV station that officials did not yet know what it was, exactly, in the synthetic weed that was causing the problem, but it seemed like it might be an anticoagulant or blood thinner. The end product can be packaged for smoking or converted to a liquid for use in e-cigarettes or similar devices.

If a person was hospitalized, they could get Vitamin K through an IV, which would work faster on the body, Lank said.

Shah says they're unsafe because it's hard to know what chemicals they contain or what an individual's reaction will be. "The vast majority have reported acquiring the product in the Chicagoland area", told the chief medical officer of the Illinois Department of Public Health, Jennifer Layden, to CBS Chicago.

While those affected by the outbreak admitted using cannabinoids, it's been hard to determine their exact source for the substance, Arnold said. A study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also found the use of fake weed can increase risky and violent behaviors, particularly among teens.

Anyone who has a serious reaction to synthetic marijuana should call 911 or immediately go to a hospital, the IDPH said.
