I wanted to enlighten many to the untold consequences of pot 
legalization that I have seen first hand at work. Moral issues aside, 
the legalization of pot in many states has led to an explosion (both 
literally and figuratively) of fire losses. In those states that have 
legalized pot, there is no way to prevent "legal" pot from being used 
to make butane hash oil (BTO). You just simply blast your "legal" pot 
with butane (lighter fluid), cook the left off over THC/lighter fluid 
mix (what could go wrong there), and smoke, eat or otherwise consume 
the dark sludge which is a much better high. I have been involved in 
8 figure losses due to butane hash explosions and I would prefer not 
to handle those types of claims in Ohio too. Luckily, since I'm just 
a property claim's guy, I will just have to handle the property 
damage claim, not the fatality claims.
