merryjane.com – Last week, Indiana police found marijuana oil cartridges packaged like kids cereal in a teen’s car during a traffic stop.
The weed “vape vials,” which likely were manufactured somewhere in California, boasted THC levels as high as 90 percent.
According to 14 News, the deputy who initially made the stop was unsure if the parodic cereal packages, which featured famous cereal mascots with blood-shot eyes, were simply “Trix” or truly contained THC. To confirm, he called in a K-9 unit.
But drug dogs aren’t trained to sniff out THC, as the intoxicating compound bears no detectable scent. Rather, cops train their dogs to smell specific terpenes present in the plant’s resin. One of the product’s labels claimed its cartridge contained 10 percent terpenes.
Drug dealers have been naming their product all sorts of names to market their shit on the street since the concept of selling drugs, so selling THC oil using familiar cereal brands isn’t surprising. Stop boxing cereal in and labeling it as just “kids cereal” because my 34 year old ass will forever enjoy a bowl of Cheerios damnit.
