New synthetic marijuana causes severe bleeding

First Maryland case of bleeding from synthetic marijuana reported

"Public health agencies are reporting that patients who admitted to smoking synthetic cannabinoids are presenting to hospitals with severe bleeding and testing positive for brodifacoum", said Dr. Ponni Arunkumar, Cook County's Chief Medical Examiner. "You may bleed in your lungs, in your abdomen and die", he said.

The state health department reports since early March, at least 95 people statewide have gotten sick after ingesting in the synthetic weed. Cook County's Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Ponni Arunkumar said synthetic marijuana is unsafe enough.

Severe and uncontrollable bleeding, hallucinations and even death. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHSS) on Thursday issued a statement warning of the a spike in spice-related problems in IL. It is one of the most widely used pesticides around the world. "Symptoms may range from unexplained bruising, bleeding from the nose or gums, blood in the urine or stools, coughing up or vomiting blood, to bleeding in the brain", said Dr. Jenny Lu, toxicologist and emergency medicine physician at Stroger Hospital. There are 70 cases of severe bleeding, including two deaths, linked with synthetic cannabinoids - often called Spice, K2 or fake weed - across Chicago and areas in central IL. Hundreds of different synthetic cannabinoid chemicals are manufactured and sprayed on dried plant material or sold as liquids to be inhaled in addictive tobacco products like e-cigarettes or other vaping devices. Public health officials say the product is not safe and if anyone has purchased it they shouldn't use it. Other interventions may be necessary depending on the severity of the poisoning.




While there have been no reported cases of complications from using synthetic cannabis, Lake County Health Department Executive Director Mark Pfister said in the statement that local officials are monitoring the situation.

If you have been exposed to synthetic marijuana, doctors say it's important to seek immediate medical attention.
