Athens-Clarke County police issued a warning today about homemade vape cartridges that have been “tainted” with THC and other chemicals.
Earlier this week, police executed a warrant and seized 2,370 of the homemade cartridges. They were nearly identical to those produced by a company in California—where THC, the compound in marijuana that makes you high—is legal, but several other chemicals that carry health concerns were added, too.
In addition, THC remains illegal in Georgia, and shipping THC to Georgia from a state where it’s legal is against the law, as well.
