A death is now being linked to fake weed or a spice. The Illinois Department of Public Health warned last week about the drug causing a rash of gruesome symptoms including bleeding from the eyes. But using has turned fatal according the IDPH. The death joins 38 reported cases of bleeding from the eyes after people use the drug also known as K2. Melaney Arnold with IDPH says they battle a belief that using the drug has little to no side effects.




Details on the deceased person have yet to be released but people who have wound up in the hospital have tested positive for an anticoagulant found in rat poison.
