Police in Illinois are warning the public about an extremely potent drug that is gaining popularity in the state, saying it can "cause users to disconnect from reality" and might even lead to "hallucinations and other types of psychosis." The drug is called "shatter," and it sounds awfully scary until you learn that's just a concentrated form of marijuana.

The Illinois State Police put out the warning last week that the high from shatter can be "up to six times stronger than the average marijuana cigarette" after they confiscated more than 100 pounds of the drug and arrested three people for possession. It's not the first time law enforcement has sounded the alarm about the marijuana derivative, which is typically made using the chemical solvent butane, to the extent that many people use the term "shatter" interchangeably with "BHO," short for butane hash oil.
