Almost two weeks go, I wrote an article about laced drugs and it's affect on Illinoisans. Unfortunately, my warning has gone unnoticed.

According to WIFR, "Illinois public health officials say a third person has died who experienced severe bleeding after using synthetic marijuana."

The next statistic is scarier, if you can believe it. There are now a reported 107 cases where people are experiencing severe bleeding due to synthetic marijuana. Last week, there were only 56 cases. Of the three deaths, two were males in their twenties. The most recent was a man in his forties.

It's not like we needed it but this appears to be more evidence that women are smarter than men. Many of the cases tested positive for a lethal anticoagulant often used in rat poison. Women understand that is bad for you. Men, apparently, not so much.

According to WIFR, "State public health officials are urging residents not to use synthetic marijuana, which is often referred to as Spice, K2 or fake weed."
