Although the majority of the cases were in IL, including the three deaths, several cases were found in Indiana, Maryland, Missouri and Wisconsin, according to a CDC alert to clinicians released April 5. There were two fatalities in IL.

Officials say one of the deaths was a 22-year-old man who died of excessive internal bleeding March 28, CBS Chicago reports.

Two cases of have been reported in IN, one in Maryland, one in Missouri and one in Wisconsin, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

There have been no confirmed cases in Macon County. "We strongly urge everyone not to use synthetic cannabinoids".

OSF HealthCare medical centers - including Saint Francis in Peoria and St. Joseph in Bloomington - have treated 32 patients, OSF spokeswoman Shelli Dankoff said.

The state's department of public health tracks cases of bleeding from synthetic marijuana online.

It said possible symptoms from using the drugs are coughing up blood, blood in urine, severe bloody noses and bleeding gums.

Nine of the cases have tested positive for brodifacoum, a lethal anticoagulant used in rat poison.

"We continue to see the number of cases rise", Dr. Nirav Shah, director of the state's Department of Public Health, said in the statement.

News 10 spoke to several people who didn't really know much about synthetic cannabinoids.

There are also state laws and local ordinances that make synthetic drugs illegal, but that doesn't mean there's no chance someone in the county might get a hold of them, Stenger said.

Three men who are convenience store clerks in North Lawndale have been arrested and face federal drug charges for allegedly illegally selling synthetic cannabis.

Another person has died from using synthetic marijuana. The "fake week" can be found in convenience stores, gas stations, head shops, novelty stores across IL and the nation, as well as on the internet. But if anyone does have a bad reaction, like severe bleeding, they should call 911 or have someone take them to the hospital immediately.
