Hash oil: What it is, why it’s dangerous
SAN DIEGO — A growing threat of illegal hash oil labs continues to be a problem in San Diego. Multiple accidents have already destroyed local homes and caused severe injuries.
Now, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office are stepping up and offering in-depth Hash and Oil Lab training.
Since May 5, 2019, DEA has dismantled eight hash oil laboratories in San Diego County; two of which resulted in explosions sending multiple people to the hospital with severe burns.
