The November 2014 TSRP Traffic Tuesday webinar covered the two primary areas of concern with hash oil. The first is the manufacturing of hash oil which is contributing to dangerous explosions in residential areas. Law enforcement officers responding to these scenes need to know what to watch out for. The second major concern is the extreme level of impairment caused by the use of hash oil and the danger this presents on our roadways. Hash oil is extremely potent and very popular among young users. Officers need to be aware of the paraphernalia associated with hash oil, use patterns, and the signs and symptoms of impairment they should expect to see in someone under the influence.
