The Illinois Department of Public Health has warned that some appear to have been contaminated, and 107 people have experienced severe hemorrhaging after using it. Cases have also been reported in New York, Maryland, Wisconsin, Indiana and Missouri.

According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, 94 people in five states who used synthetic cannabinoids have been treated since March 10 for bleeding due to coagulopathy, a blood clotting disorder. IL authories said more than 100 people have also experienced the severe bleeding. Two of the men who died were in their 20s and the third man was in his 40s.

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.

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.

Synthetic cannabinoids are classified as a controlled substance and their possession can lead to misdemeanor or felony charges depending on the amount possessed. The drugs are known to cause severe bleeding, internal bleeding, bleeding gums and other symptoms.

"Each day we've seen the number of cases rise", said IDPH director Nirav D. Shah, who emphasized that "synthetic cannabinoids are unsafe".

Synthetic cannabinoids are made by spraying "mind-altering" chemicals onto dried plants, the department said. It can be made from any one of dozens of chemical compounds manufactured in labs in China, the USA and eastern Europe.

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.

McLean County Coroner Kathy Davis and Tazewell County Coroner Brian Foley said there have been no confirmed synthetic cannabinoid deaths in those two counties.

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.
