When you see someone smoking an electronic cigarette, it may not be nicotine what they are inhaling. Some are using electronic cigarettes as a new way to get high. They are smoking a liquid cannabis steamer. It is sometimes referred to as hachish oil. By using electronic cigarettes, the illegal drug can be smoked anywhere undetected. That has the Sangamon County Sheriff's Office concerned.
"You have no idea what they're smoking there," said Kathy Drea, Defense Vice President of the American Mid Lung Association.
It is a new trend among marijuana users: smoking illegal hachu oil with the use of electronic cigarettes.
