The shipment of “wax” was reportedly being taken to a music festival in San Bernardino County.

Said to be the strongest form of marijuana on the market, “wax” allegedly leads to a quicker, stronger high than other marijuana concentrates and also has psychoactive properties, according to the news release.

Attempting to make “wax” at home is said to be extremely dangerous and is known to cause explosions when done improperly, according to Drug Enforcement Administration officials.
