Donation to help IL with synthetic marijuana outbreak

Drugs laced with rat poison blamed for multiple deaths

Synthetic cannabinoids across Chicago and parts of central IL have been found to contain brodifacoum, a rat poison, according to state health officials.

Those who have become sick have reported coughing up blood, severe bloody noses and internal bleeding.

Just hours after the Illinois Department of Public Heath announced a fourth death in the state from use of the drug, the WCHD announced the discovery of three local bleeding cases. The Midwestern state, where all of the deaths have occurred, is the hardest hit. More than 150 people in IL in 13 counties have been sickened by synthetic cannabinoids laced with rat poison.
