The U.S. Army is warning about the dangers of vaping synthetic cannabinoid oil after about 100 soldiers and Marines experienced serious medical problems.

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. Two Marines have died in accidents blamed on synthetic cannabinoid-induced seizures.
