Two of the deaths were men in their 20s, and the other man was in his 40s, according to a news release from the department.

Fake marijuana likely contaminated with rat poison has killed three people in IL and sickened more than 100 others in the last month.

The guidance instructs hospitals and clinics to be on the lookout for people complaining of severe bleeding not related to an injury, or when the bleeding started after using synthetic marijuana.

In nine cases in IL, the substances were cut with brodifacoum - or rat poison, according to the statement from the health department.

The third synthetic marijuana-related fatality comes after three Chicago-area convenience store clerks were charged for allegedly selling synthetic cannabinoids laced with rodent poison, police said. It is sold in smoke shops and other stores as liquids that can be used in e-cigarettes or in dried plant material that can be smoked.

According to WGN 9, since March, 107 people in Ilinois have been affected and three died. "Synthetic cannabinoids are unsafe".

Melaney Arnold of IDPH says, "These are unregulated products so it's hard to determine where they're coming from".

Conte says West Ham draw sums up Chelsea's season
After the game the West Ham manager admitted that this was a crucial point and lauded the performance of his often criticised 'keeper.

Symptoms include coughing up blood, blood in urine, and bleeding from the nose, eyes and gums.

Illnesses have been linked to fake marijuana before but this is the first outbreak involving rat poison contamination, said the CDC's Renee Funk.

But the reports of severe bleeding due to synthetic drug use is causing new concerns among public officials.

Makers of synthetic cannabis have attempted to bypass state and federal laws banning certain strains or chemical compounds by labelling the substance not fit for human consumption.

Synthetic marijuana, also known as spice, is causing violent behavior and risky overdoses across the country.

"These chemicals are called cannabinoids because they are similar to chemicals found in the marijuana plant".

Anyone who has a reaction to synthetic cannabinoids, such as severe bleeding, should call 911 or have someone take them to the emergency department immediately.
