Drugs affect our Community in Many Ways

by Placerville Newswire / Feb 29, 2016 / comments

Here's another example of how drugs can affect our community. 

These are hundreds of empty butane canisters, used in the manufacture of Butane Honey Oil (a form of concentrated cannibis). 

They were dumped and set on fire near a stream in the southern part of the county. 

Drugs not only harm our residents, but can also damage the environment. 

Luckily, Cal Fire was able to contain and extinguish the fire before it spread to the surrounding area.
