BHO Fires, Other Dangers for Older Children of Stoner Parents

(Read Part1 of this series on older children with pot-using parents. Upload our fact sheet about children’s death related to marijuana use.)

Infants and toddlers are vulnerable to negligence and abuse by marijuana-using parents. How are older children vulnerable?  In Gresham, Oregon on September 25, a mother suffering from anxiety who used marijuana several times a day, shot and killed her 17-year-old son.  The recently-divorced mom was losing her home, had quit her job and was suffering from anxiety. The stress of her situation is understandable, but marijuana is the wrong way to cope with stress.  It ultimately increases anxiety and can lead to psychosis, too.

BHO Fires are a Threat to Children

Another big problem is butane hash oil fires. Two years ago in Medford, Oregon, a 12-year old girl jumped out of the second story window and sustained several broken bones Continue reading BHO Fires, Other Dangers for Older Children of Stoner Parents

Bellevue’s Massive BHO Fire: Two Year’s Later

Exactly two years ago today a hash oil explosion in Bellevue destroyed 10  apartment units just outside of Seattle.  Three men  started the fire at 6:20 a.m. by using butane to extract the hash oil from marijuana.  One hundred police and fire fighters were called to battle the fire which lasted several hours and injured seven.

Despite this extensive damage and the use of 100 police and fire attendants at the scene, the sheriff of King County, Washington made television commercials in favor of  Oregon’s Measure 91,  the 2014 ballot to legalize marijuana in Oregon.  It passed.  Interesting!

Nan Campbell, former mayor of Bellevue died in the fire after suffering from a broken pelvis. Other residents ended up with broken bones, after jumping out of 2nd and 3rd story windows.  Originally it was thought that the injuries were not life-threatening, but Campbell died.

California Citizens Call for Enforcement of Marijuana Laws

By Roger Morgan, Take Back America Campaign #Stoppot2016
Passage of Prop 215, The Compassionate Use Act, in 1996 was a result of a propaganda campaign financed by three out of state billionaires, with George Soros at the helm. It is hard to even describe what one means by “medical marijuana.” The potency (i.e. THC) has escalated from 4 to 6% in 1996 to as high as 40% in smoked form, and 96% as Butane Honey Oil (BHO). Cannibidiol (CBD), the one component that may have therapeutic potential, has been largely bio-engineered out of the plant in favor of THC, because “patients” just want to get high.

Undeterred by the fact that manufacturing BHO is a felony, amateurs are routinely blowing up houses and apartments, killing some, badly burning others, including their kids. Survivors are filling up burn centers throughout the state, costing taxpayers millions of dollars for skin grafts and long hospital stays.

Called BHO labs for short, the term is used to describe how amateur chemists use fire to extract the potent hash oil from the marijuana plant.  Other nicknames for BHO are “honey oiI,” “dabs,” “wax” Continue reading 4 Die from California BHO Lab Fires, 32 in 2014
