Blast rocks legal marijuana business in Astoria, sends 2 to burn unit

Noelle Crombie October 20, 2016

Two people working in a marijuana processing business in Astoria were taken to Legacy Oregon Burn Center late Wednesday after an explosion rocked the building.

The blast – the first involving a legal cannabis enterprise in Oregon — remains under investigation but early indications point to butane as a possible cause, officials said.

The business, Higher Level Concentrates, uses the highly volatile gas to make hash oil. The explosion is under investigation by Oregon OSHA, an agency whose mission is worker safety and health.
