Synthetic Drugs Causing Severe Bleeding

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is warning people about the dangers of synthetic cannabinoids – often referred to as fake weed, K2, or spice. This comes as people continue to be hospitalized with severe bleeding after using the products, which could be mixed with rat poison. Wisconsin has seen fifteen total cases since March, seven of which have been confirmed. Those confirmed cases have hit Dane, Milwaukee, and Outagamie Counties. Illinois has reported four deaths in connection to bleeding caused by the drugs.
