You absolutely read the above-mentioned headline correctly! Fourteen thousand marijuana plants were burned without any vapors, residue, or pungent-odors, such as THC escaping into the air.
THC is an acronym for Tetrahydrocannabinol, the main psychoactive ingredient of the cannabis plant, better known as marijuana.
In fact, THC is the aromatic terpenoid that produces the scent otherwise known as bud, pot, grass, mary jane, indo, weed, reefer and skunk to name a few.
The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Department seized and confiscated the plants during a drug bust in the San Isabel National Forest, located in central Colorado.
As you might imagine, fourteen thousand marijuana plants is an extraordinary amount of “grass”.
In an effort to not only destroy the marijuana, but also contain it, the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Department burned the marijuana at the Evraz steel plant in a high intensity heating enclosed structure. The unit was used in an effort to prevent odors and vapors from escaping into the air.
Technology saved the day again, as it insured that untold numbers of people did not breathe in the odor of burning marijuana.
Moreover, The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Department has routinely used the Evraz facility to destroy marijuana and other narcotics.
