Fake weed claims its first life in Wisconsin. State health officials say a person has died in Milwaukee County related to the use of synthetic marijuana. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services said yesterday morning that the death is the first confirmed in the state linked to the use of fake pot, also called K-2, spice and Scooby Snax. Overall, Wisconsin has seen 45 cases since March, including 37 confirmed cases and eight probable cases, in Dane, Milwaukee, Outagamie and Rock counties. State health officials say they are working with local health departments, the C-D-C, the Poison Control Center and other partners to try to identify common products or sources.
