Synthetic Pot Warning Issued After 22 People in Illinois Report Bleeding From Eyes, Ears

Synthetic pot users in Illinois are going to the emergency room complaining of bleeding from their eyes, ears, noses, bleeding gums and for women, heavier periods.

Synthetic pot has always been considered dangerous, but bleeding has never been a side effect.

Authorities have narrowed down Chicago as the area where the synthetic pot is being sold and even though there is a state ban on the synthetic marijuana, health officials say manufactuers are probably “cutting” the substance to get around laws that would make it illegal for it to be sold.

32 people have went to the hospital with bleeding symptoms due to the use of the synthetic since March 7th. No deaths have been reported.

Have you ever tried synthetic weed? Had a bad weed experience?
