Another butane explosion during hash oil extraction, this time in Malibu


Some say the Death Star was destroyed by an errant hash maker.

Proving that trying to extract high concentrations of THC from marijuana plants can be just as destructive as tweakers running meth labs, a man in Malibu blew up a rental home this week.
The house at 1170 Encinal Canyon Road was no shack – it sat on 34 acres and was worth about $600,000. LA Weekly has more.
