Man blows up his flat tampering with gas to make hash from cannabis resin
12 October 2016 @ 12:08

A MAN who caused an explosion that blew the balcony off his apartment by trying to create hash from cannabis resin has been arrested.

Another man who was in the fourth-floor flat at the same time was flung from the window due to the sheer force of the blast, and is in a critical condition in the burns unit at Barcelona's Vall d'Hebron hospital.

Part of the rendering of the block on the C/ Amaya in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelona province) was blown off and landed in the street, but luckily, nobody was walking underneath it – nor beneath the balcony and its contents, which also fell off the wall – at the time.

The mother of one of the men was in the apartment, but is not hurt.

Police say the accused, a 32-year-old Spaniard, was tampering with the gas supply to turn cannabis plant resin into hash so it could be smoked.
