Tactical Tip: Pipe Bomb or Extractor? 

Metal, plastic, or glass tubes used to extract THC from marijuana can appear to be an improvised explosive device (IED).  Further complicating recognition, is the then may be referred to as a “blaster”. 

The extraction tube is used for “open blasting” where the tube is filled with marijuana and Butane is sprayed into the top of the tube through a small hole or valve.  The THC/Butane mixture exit the bottom of the tube through a screen or cheese cloth.
