Fake Weed Is Causing Users’ Eyes To Bleed, And Doctors Don’t Know Why

Fake weed is often treated the same as real weed, even when it comes to laying down the law over the stuff. But it’s called “fake” for a reason. It’s really just a chemical related to THC the chemical that gets you high, thrown into some sort of chemical cocktail and sprayed on some grass, then sold as weed. And in the Chicago area, some users are learning the hard way there’s not any quality control, as they’ve found themselves bleeding. Out. Of. Their. Eyes.

Needless to say, “your eyes might start bleeding” isn’t a usual symptom of fake weed. But, according to the Chicago Tribune, at least 22 people have gone to the hospital after using the fake stuff with some terrifying symptoms:

    The health department said Thursday that symptoms have included bleeding from the eyes and ears. On Friday, officials clarified that while this can happen, those affected in Illinois have reported other symptoms, like coughing up blood, blood in urine, bloody noses, bleeding gums and, for women, heavier than usual menstrual flow.
