A man is in very critical condition after staying in the "Extended Stay America Hotel". They found ricin in the apartment. This is a deadly drug that can kill you if inhaled or ingested in the form of mist, pill or powder.

Really really scary...but what can you do to protect yourself? Pretty much nothing. I guess, just don't eat strange powdery substances you find in hotel rooms...

LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - An unidentified man is in critical condition with suspected ricin poisoning after staying in a Las Vegas hotel room where the potentially deadly substance was found, police said on Friday.

The FBI said the incident was not thought to be terrorism related.

Police said the man, who they did not name, had last occupied the room two weeks ago and was taken to a local hospital on February 14 when he complained of breathing difficulties.
