Tens of thousands of vaping cartridges holding high concentrations of the active ingredient in marijuana were seized in from a home in Coon Rapids this week in what law enforcement is calling the largest haul of its kind in state history.
The seizure of 75,000 cartridges with THC went down at a condominium Monday in the 3600 block of Coon Rapids Boulevard, and a 22-year-old man from Champlin was arrested, the state Department of Public Safety (DPS) said Tuesday afternoon.
Many of the cartridges were in packages illustrated with younger users in mind. Some sport famous cartoon characters or themes of sweet flavors. One called Fruity Pebbles shows a smiling Fred Flintstone. There are also packages titled Cherry Kush, Candy Land and Strawberry Shortcake.
