The number of severe-bleeding cases linked to the use of synthetic pot has grown to 32 people in seven IL counties, according to the state Department of Public Health.
While numerous cases report acquiring the synthetic cannabinoid products in the Chicagoland area, contaminated products could be in counties across the state.
Yesterday (March 29), the Chicago Tribune reported that that number had risen to 22, a figure that included cases dating back to March 7. Dr. Melissa Millewich, an emergency room physician at an IL hospital, said it's a new symptom for the drug, which some erroneously view as a safe alternative to pot. "This bleeding is not expected, at least in such a significant population so quickly", says one area ER physician.

Users have reported bleeding from their eyes and ears, as well as extremely heavy menstrual bleeding or bleeding disproportionately from an injury.
