KENT COUNTY, Mich - Authorities are warning people about a potentially explosive technique that is used to make a powerful marijuana concentrate following an overnight fire in Grand Rapids.

Grand Rapids Police say hash oil extraction took a dangerous turn at a home along Sigsbee Street, leaving one person with critical injuries.

The homeowner says he has a card to grow medical marijuana, which is something investigators say they're working to verify.

But whether or not the card makes the grow operation legal, it's the extraction of THC using butane that could lead to felony charges.

      Just wanted to add, this is further motivation for legalization. Getting grow operations and the production of concentrates out of residential buildings and into commercial buildings is better for everyone in society.
