There were 10 cases reported in Chicago and four others in Cook County, according to the department of health.

Chicago police recently shut down a corner store in the Lawndale area of the city after an investigation found clerks selling potentially deadly synthetic cannabis. On Friday, officials clarified that while this can happen, those affected in IL have reported other symptoms, like coughing up blood, blood in urine, bloody noses, bleeding gums and, for women, heavier than usual menstrual flow.

It is also updated that the people are rushing towards the emergency rooms in the hospital to get the treatment for this severe bleeding.

Although numerous people affected by the outbreak have reported acquiring the drugs in the Chicago area, the IDPH said synthetic cannabinoids could also be in other counties across the state.

To make fake marijuana products, manufacturers simply spray cannabinoid chemicals on inert plant material.

Health officials reported 22 known people who experienced the symptom since March 7, and they continue to track the situation, Arnold said.

Leikin said to the TV station that officials did not yet know what it was, exactly, in the synthetic weed that was causing the problem, but it seemed like it might be an anticoagulant or blood thinner. The products are also sometimes referred to as herbal or liquid incense.

While those affected by the outbreak admitted using cannabinoids, it's been hard to determine their exact source for the substance, Arnold said.

"Despite the perception that synthetic cannabinoids are safe and a legal alternative to marijuana, many are illegal and can cause severe illness", said Illinois Department of Public Health Director Nirav D. Shah in a statement. It is still a hard task to know about the actual effective thing and what one should know about it as well.

"These chemicals are called cannabinoids because they act on the same brain cell receptors as the main active ingredient in marijuana", IDPH explained, warning that the drug's impact can be life-threatening.
