The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has issued an alert about a synthetic form of marijuana being laced with a substance used as rat poison thats being blamed for causing severe bleeding, and has killed two in IL.

DHS says there are two confirmed deaths in IL among users of the substance. Synthetic cannabinoids are found across IL and the U.S.in convenience stores, gas stations, drug paraphernalia shops, novelty stores and online.

To date, the illnesses have been associated with the use of synthetic marijuana products.

According to the press release, brodifacoum has been identified by the Illinois Department of Public Health as the cause of 70 cases of uncontrolled bleeding and two deaths reported between March 7 and April 2.

Three of these cases have tested positive for brodifacoum, a lethal anticoagulant often used as a rodenticide, or rat poison.

Synthetic cannabinoids are not one drug.

Maryland health officials are investigating the state's first case of bleeding caused by synthetic cannabinoids, also known as spice, K2, or fake weed.

It's a man-made, mind-altering chemical which is either sprayed on dried shredded plant material to be smoked, or sold as a liquid to be vaporized and inhaled.

They suspect this is due to synthetic marijuana containing brodifacoum.

You're urged to call 911 or go to the emergency department right away if you or someone you know has a serious reaction to synthetic cannabinoids.
