The 28th continued their push this week in north Gibson County against the high content THC vape cartridges being marketed to high school teens as well as young adults with the seizure of 48 cartridges this week. MANY OF THESE PARTICULAR CARTRIDGES CONTAINED SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA IN ADDITION TO THC AND ADVERTISED HAVING A 95% THC CONTENT! Synthetic marijuana is man made in homemade labs with no health controls for cleanliness. Regardless of your stance on marijuana it is still illegal in Tennessee and these particular cartridges are dangerous with synthetic cannabis. One male is in the custody of Sheriff Paul Thomas at the Gibson County Sheriff's Office.
