Bleeding Outbreak - Cuomo Warns of Synthetic Marijuana Mixed with Rat Poison

Bleeding Outbreak - Cuomo Warns of Synthetic Marijuana Mixed with Rat Poison

The man-made drugs are sprayed onto dried plant material and can be smoke or vaporized.

"So if people know of somebody who uses a synthetic cannabinoid type product or might use it, we ask that you help spread the word and let them know this is a unsafe product that has been actually fatal in three cases in IL". Those sickened have reported blood in the urine, severe bloody noses, bleeding gums and internal bleeding.

In nine cases in IL, the substances were cut with brodifacoum - or rat poison, according to the statement from the health department.

"Each day, we've seen the number of cases rise", IDPH Director Dr. Nirav Shah said in a prepared statement. "We strongly urge everyone not to use synthetic cannabinoids".

Officials in NY are warning medics about a new form of synthetic marijuana laced with rat poison that it is believed to cause uncontrollable bleeding. While efforts are underway to get the contaminated drugs out of circulation, it's possible they could re-emerge. The CDC also recommends providers report suspected cases associated with synthetic marijuana to their local health department.

McLean County Coroner Kathy Davis and Tazewell County Coroner Brian Foley said there have been no confirmed synthetic cannabinoid deaths in those two counties.

North Korea Hold Secret, Direct Talks
Working-level officials need to determine how Kim would arrive at the southern side of the border village for the summit. I don't think there's much of a chance that the meeting will take place in the North Korean capital.

Some convenience stores, gas stations, other shops and websites sell synthetic cannabinoids. The health effects from using synthetic cannabinoids can be unpredictable, harmful, and deadly.

Federal officials say the synthetic cannabinoids were packaged in sealed containers and labeled with such names as "Matrix", "Blue Giant" and "Crazy Monkey".

Friday's updated number includes two deaths and is up from 56 cases reported Monday.

In the 1980s, synthetic cannabinoids were considered research compounds but they are now produced overseas, according to the CDC.

Anyone who has a reaction to synthetic cannabinoids, such as severe bleeding, should call 911 or have someone take them to the emergency department immediately.
