Two Farmington Hills teens and one from Wolverine Lake face charges after police found marijuana wax in a North Farmington High School student's backpack Monday morning.
According to the Farmington Hills Police report, officers were called to the school by administrators who suspected marijuana had been used in the boys' restroom.
Police found two jars of marijuana wax in student book bags and in a vehicle. Officers also noticed a strong odor of marijuana in the restroom, where someone apparently used a plastic bag to concentrate the effects of marijuana smoke.
When police checked one student's cell phone, they were able to identify the teen who supplied the marijuana. A search of his home turned up more marijuana wax, pipes, lighters and other tools.
According to a WWJ 950AM report, marijuana wax, also known as "earwax" marijuana, is created by "using aerosol butane to extract THC from leftover marijuana stems and seeds." The result is an "extremely potent" form of the drug.
Susan Smolinske of the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Regional Poison Control Center told the station, "One puff is equivalent to one entire joint of marijuana."
