DHS Reports More Synthetic Marijuana Cases

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services says dozens more people have been hospitalized for internal bleeding since the outbreak of dangerous synthetic marijuana cases back in March. It started with six cases in March and April – and has grown to 44 cases, with 38 of those reported since the beginning of June.  

The K2 or Spice is illegal, but is still sold at some stores and online. Multiple deaths reported in Illinois were linked to rat poison chemicals found in the drugs. Anyone who has used synthetic marijuana and has experienced bruising or bleeding should go to the emergency room immediately – but if you’ve used the drug and not experienced symptoms, doctors still recommend getting checked out, just in case.
