State Warns of Synthetic Marijuana Mixed With Rat Poison

posted by WGY News - 


A nasty batch of synthetic marijuana is sending people to the ER in several states.

The New York State Department of Health is telling hospitals and urgent-care centers to be on high alert after severe bleeding cases in Illinois, Maryland, Wisconsin, Indiana and Missouri are been linked to Synthetic Marijuana contaminated with rat poison. 

The rat poison acts like an anti-coagulant and victims have serious bleeding. 

New York has been cracking down on synthetic marijuana, which is made by coating plant material with chemicals, since earlier this decade.
