‘Super-potent’ hash, marijuana seized in North Georgia bust

A 35-year-old Jackson County man was arrested after authorities discovered a cache of drugs Monday.

Nikki Nelson Allen of Commerce faces drug distribution charges in connection with about 5.5 pounds of marijuana, a large quantity of butane honey oil and $7,462 in cash, Appalachian Regional Drug Enforcement Office spokesman Mitchell Posey said.

“BHO is a super-potent type of hash that has surged on the marijuana market,” Posey said. “The ‘dabs’ of oil can be vaporized and inhaled without the pungent smell of weed, and produce a soaring high for even longtime cannabis smokers with a strong tolerance for the drug.’

The arrest followed a warrant served on behalf of Banks County officials for distribution of marijuana.

The marijuana and BHO has a street value of $27,500, Posey said.

Allen was booked into the Jackson County Detention Center.
