Dabbing is gaining popularity, but the high THC concentration and butane infused form of marijuana has many parents and law enforcement concerned about the negative effects of the potent and potentially toxic form.
"It's just more potent than other drugs and its easier to come by than any other drug and there's a lot of people that will do that instead of just going out and smoking marijuana or something," said high school junior Kelsey Raley.
Deputy Chad Williams said the potent form can be hard to identify and wants to help parents know what they are looking for.
"They'll dab some of that resin or that sticky glue or ear wax or whatever it is that they have and inside the nail and dome bong is a titanium nail and they will use the butane torch to then heat the nail up so its glowing hot," said Williams.
Deputy Williams said dabbing or dabs is an issue because users are saturating their brain with THC. The waxy form contains 75% of THC where standard marijuana only has a 10-15% concentration.
