It is often sprayed on dried plants so it can also be smoked, vaped or otherwise consumed similarly.

The deaths are among 107 reported incidences of individuals who experienced severe bleeding after using these products that also are known as fake weed, K2, or spice.

As of Monday, it said, there have been 107 cases of bleeding from synthetic cannabis use in IL since March 7.

Two of the deaths were men in their 20's; the third was a man in his 40's. Symptoms included coughing up blood, blood in urine, a severe bloody nose, bleeding gums and/or internal bleeding, according to the statement.

Federal officers said artificial cannabinoids have been packaged in sealed containers tagged with titles like "Matrix, ' 'Blue Giant" and 'insane Monkey.' Testing of the products demonstrated brodifacoum, a toxic substance often used in rat poison.

The Coles County Health Department joined with departments statewide in issuing a warning about possible dangers of synthetic cannabis use.

Officials in NY are warning medics about a new form of synthetic marijuana laced with rat poison that it is believed to cause uncontrollable bleeding.

The CDC is suggesting healthcare providers screen patients who enter ERs with unexplained bleeding and potential history of using this synthetic marijuana.

The term "synthetic cannabinoids" applies to numerous mind-altering chemicals similar to those in marijuana that are used to create substitutes, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). The health effects from using synthetic cannabinoids can be unpredictable, harmful, and deadly.

"Just (Monday) we sent information from the Illinois Department of Public Health's website on the situation out to our officers for their awareness", he said.

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.

In the 1980s, synthetic cannabinoids were considered research compounds but they are now produced overseas, according to the CDC.

The CDC and the IDPH are urging anyone who has a reaction to synthetic cannabinoids, including severe bleeding, to seek emergency medical treatment.
