    In what the police called an unusual drug arrest, a Brooklyn man was charged on Wednesday with selling liquid marijuana.

    “It has not been seen around here before,” said Capt. Gerard Dowling of the Manhattan South narcotics division, referring to a dark green mixture of alcohol and marijuana.

    The police said they seized eight Mason jars of the substance on Wednesday from the home of the man, Anthony Briordy, 32. They said they also seized cocaine and prescription painkillers, including OxyContin.

    An undercover officer began purchasing the liquid and other drugs from Mr. Briordy about two months ago, the police said. Mr. Briordy was said to have told the officer that the liquid was often mixed with fruit punch.

    The police said that throughout the investigation, Mr. Briordy told the officer that he made the mixture at home and that a four-ounce dose of it was stronger than one marijuana cigarette.

    The liquid was classified as a controlled substance, the police said, after laboratory tests determined that it was an extremely potent form of marijuana.

    swim made something similar at home using vodka and stems and a few buds. The concoction was no where near as strong as they are claiming this one to have been.

    This is the first swim heard of someone actually selling it though, swim thought it was more something you experimented with at home.

    Obviously the man actually knew what he was doing.

    Yea he probably already did the home experiments(who hasn't) and had a pleasant experience. Then he probably perfected his recipe so that he could measure out doses, and whats comes next? He tried marketing it... well DID market it.
