In a Monday public health alert, the U.S. Army Public Health Center said military personnel have suffered headaches, nausea, vomiting, palpitations, dilated pupils, dizziness, agitation, and seizures.
All these symptoms are associated with synthetic cannabinoids.
Army regulations ban the use of so-called CBD oil or any products derived from marijuana, so some soldiers are using synthetic replacement oil.
Public Health Center spokeswoman Chanel S. Weaver tells The Fayetteville Observer that stopping this trend is a "top priority."
Correction: The Army Public Health office has corrected their reporting and says no deaths have been attributed to synthetic cannabinoids.
