dancingshadow What? ... It was caused by butane? Did they have an underground tanker truck of butane? I just don't see how anyone could fill their house with butane so much that the pilot light sets it off.
dancingshadow From the KS star: One of the brothers went to refuel butane torches to light bongs and emptied butane lighter fluid.
I sure am glad they mentioned the butane was to light bongs. Can someone give me an explanation how an explosion can result from this ?
SolRo He was high and drunk, couldn't refuel it right, went through several cans to refuel a small number of torches?
And from a CBS news story from their local KC affiliate, one of the posters gets really angry about how "the media" is making pot-users look bad by making a big deal that the butane was going to be used to light their bongs. The person posting is apparently too stoned to have had the "and meth" part of the story get through their THC-tinted glasses.
Oscar Wildcat Personally, I prefer shooting marijuana directly into my veins rather than freebasing the stuff with a torch and pipe. Really, this marijuana stuff is incredibly addicitive and dangerous, we should make it illegal or something.
catpenis27 5 stars for probably not even having enough money now to cover their medical costs.
