SPENCER CO., IN (WFIE) - Authorities in Spencer County found several vials for vape pens that contained 85-90% THC.
Troopers say, in Indiana, most marijuana contains between 8-12% THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
The vials were packaged in boxes that looked like children’s cereal.
Indiana State Police Trooper Kaitlyn Greene and her partner K-9 Drogos assisted a Spencer County Deputy who found the vials during a traffic stop.
It happened on US 261 near CR 1000 N near Chrisney.
Troopers say 19-year old Zachary Casillas-Gross of Owensboro is facing a marijuana possession charge.
Troopers say it’s their job to enforce laws, and not only are products like these illegal in Indiana, they could easily get into the hands of someone who could mistake them for candy.
They say just one drop is extremely potent.
Troopers add, Indiana is a zero tolerance state. If you are found with THC in your bloodstream after a car crash, for example, you could still face charges, even if you consumed the THC in a place where it is legal.
