Synthetic Pot In Illinois Causing Severe Bleeding From Eyes And Ears

Doctors Don't Know Why This Synthetic Pot Is Making People's Eyes Bleed

IDPH director Nirav D. Shah said: 'Despite the perception that synthetic cannabinoids are safe and a legal alternative to marijuana, many are illegal and can cause severe illness.

A dozen of the cases have been reported in Chicago and other areas of Cook County, with others in DuPage, Kane, McLean, Peoria, Tazewell and Will counties - all since March 7 - IDPH said in an update Friday. In addition, anyone with concerns about unusual bleeding should contact their health care provider and let them know if they have used synthetic cannabinoids.

Some of these symptoms include coughing up blood, blood in urine, bloody noses, bleeding gums and heavier than usual menstrual flow.

Among the reported cases in IL, people have reported buying the products at convenience stores and from dealers and friends, according to the state health department.

"People don't realize how unsafe this is", she said. The chemicals which are used to made cannabinoids are risky as it works badly on the brain cell receptors and is the main ingredient used to make marijuana.

Adolescents are at a high risk to be exposed to the outbreak because synthetic cannabinoid products are typically easier to obtain than marijuana, Lank said. "It is hard to know what's in them or what your reaction to them will be".

Someone has died in Illinois after using synthetic marijuana, the Illinois Department of Public Health announced Saturday. 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 cannabinoids should call 911 or go to the emergency department immediately.
