Marijuana news: Denver considers banning home production of butane hash oil

The Denver City Council this week took one step closer to outlawing the home production of butane hash oil, or BHO, a potent and popular marijuana concentrate.

The Denver Post’s Jon Murray reports on the city’s efforts to crack down on use of the explosive gas in home-based hash oil production. The Denver City Council changed the ordinance this week to allow the use of alcohol and ethanol in the production of hash oil. Hash oil producers also can use water to make the product at home.

Earlier this year, The Oregonian investigated butane hash oil in Oregon, revealing that BHO production sent 17 people to a Portland burn unit in a 16-month span.
