July 10th is a new holiday for some people. According to marijuana smokers, 7/10 is the new 4/20.
But marijuana lovers celebrated 7/10 differently than 4/20. If you flip 710 upside down, it spells "oil," the latest form of THC.
KOB Eyewitness News 4's Danielle Todesco spoke with a local dispensary who is concerned that the holiday will lead to people using the oil illegally and irresponsibly.
Erin Sayre at R. Greenleaf's dispensary says the hash oil is extremely potent and they reserve it for clients in the most extreme pain.
"Don't abuse something that took us this long for us to be able to get to people as a form of help for some of the saddest cases I've seen," Sayre said.
Hash oil and wax is also extremely dangerous to make. It starts as butane hash oil and is very flammable.
