CHICAGO – Fake marijuana otherwise known as “K2” or “spice” has left two dead and at least 54 others hospitalized in Illinois, according the Illinois Department of Public Health Monday.
The numbers of those affected by the fake marijuana are reportedly increasing as officials noted that more and more people are being taken to the hospital with symptoms such as “coughing up blood, blood in the urine, severe bloody nose, and/or bleeding gums,” the health department said in a statement.
People have tested positive for rat poison and other poisonous chemicals after using the substance in nine of the incidents, the department also noted.
