New Drug Trend in New Jersey
Everyone seems to be aware that heroin is in almost every community. Heroin is seen as the rapid growing and cheaper alternative to prescription drugs. Police are not noticing that a popular west coast drug trend is now here on the east coast. Hash oil (known as honey oil and wax). The hash oil appears to act like a super highly concentrated form of marijuana.
The process of creating hash oil is not very complicated. Producers of the drug start out by taking the plant bud and cooking it to extract all the oil and THC, which is the primary “drug” in marijuana and hashish. The finished product looks like tar, and is almost as thick as candle wax. To get high, a person will put a small amount in a vaporizer pipe. The high is reported to be more intense and occur much faster than marijuana. Police suspect that hash oil will be more difficult to detect for both officers and parents alike partly due to its size. The appearance of hash oil could also be stored near a candle and looks much like candle wax.
