The golden, explodey menace of hash oil
Wired News has a feature on butane hash oil
, a highly combustible form of marijuana that is increasingly produced inside the US. Just last week, FEMA posted an odd alert
in its emergency services bulletin: “Hash Oil Explosions Increasing Across US,” along with the "more quotidian warnings of cyber terrorism and industrial vapor clouds
." Why: more explosions at apartments and hotel rooms involving “a process using butane to extract and concentrate compounds from marijuana."
