Three men in Chicago, Illinois were charged for allegedly selling laced pot that can cause the eyes to uncontrollably bleed.

Authorities said the synthetic marijuana contained rat poison and was sealed in containers labeled “Crazy Monkey” and “Matrix.” The Illinois Department of Public Health issued a warning Monday revealing the drug has caused at least 56 people to experience severe bleeding. Some sickened by the drug were reportedly sent to the hospital with blood coming from their ears, eyes and mouth. Experts said that emergency rooms have only recently started seeing these symptoms of the drug. All three men were charged with conspiring to distribute and sell a controlled substance.(
