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.

A chemical found in rat poison, brodifacoum, prevents blood from clotting, resulting in severe bleeding.

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.

Romaine lettuce e. coli outbreak continues to grow
Symptoms of this strain of E. coli include severe stomach cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea, which is often bloody, officials said. As of April 25, 2018, 84 people infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O157:H7 have been reported from 19 states.

Officials believe at least some of the tainted drug originated in the Chicago area, where a 20-year-old man died. The donation will allow every individual who has experienced severe bleeding to receive lifesaving treatment free of charge.

Although these mind-altering chemicals are called cannabinoids, since they are created to be similar to the chemicals found in marijuana, their actual impacts on the brain and body are much more powerful.

Synthetic pot is sold under various names, like K2, Spice, Black Mamba, Bombay Blue, Genie and Zohai.

The cure for the rat poison is high doses of Vitamin K. The donation comes from the Bausch Foundation, the independent charitable organization of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries.
