Sorry, this video is no longer available

The use of marijuana wax, which packs a more potent high, is increasing throughout the country and in Minnesota.

Marijuana wax is a street name for marijuana concentrates. It’s also called Butane Hash Oil, Honey Oil, Budder, Wax, Dabs and 710, which is oil spelled upside down.

A woman in St. Cloud died after an explosion during the manufacture of marijuana wax.

Third-degree murder charges have been filed against two men in the death of 85-year-old Sally Douglas.

Two teens overdosed in Duluth after using the drug and one of their mother’s is speaking out, but she wishes to remain anonymous.

She says “We had no idea I didn’t smell it on any of his clothes, he didn’t look like he was stoned when he would come home, um we had no idea.

Even though we were involved had no idea this was going on.”

Clandestine manufacturers use highly flammable butane to extract the THC from marijuana leaves, which has resulted in a number of fires, explosions, deaths and injuries across the country.
