Marijuana wax makes its way to South Bend

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A new type of marijuana has made its way to the streets of South Bend.

It is called marijuana wax and almost looks like dried honey.

The wax is still smoked, but it has an extremely high level of THC in it. 

It is illegal in Indiana.

Police say it could be lethal for those trying to purify it in their homes.

"It's using super flammable substances to try and extract the THC so it’s highly explosive," said Captain Phil Trent. 

Trent says parents should be aware of it so they know what to look for.
