CAPSULES CONTAINING APPARENT POWDERED MARIJUANA IN LINCOLN COUNTY, NEBRASKA

from here, pretty fricking cool site.

The Nebraska State Patrol Satellite Crime Laboratory (North Platte) recently received 56 clear blister-packed capsules containing a light green, powdery substance, submitted as an unknown/possible narcotic (see Photo 5). The exhibits were seized by the Nebraska State Patrol pursuant to a traffic violation in Lincoln County. The capsules were sealed in a blister package that was marked only as being manufactured by MTS Medication Technologies. Analysis of the capsules by color testing, GC/MS, and FTIR indicated tetrahydrocannabinol, cannabidiol, and cannabinol, cut with sucrose (quantitation not performed). Interestingly, microscopic examination revealed no morphological characteristics of marijuana – probably because the material was so finely ground (see Photo 6). This is the first submission of these type capsules to the laboratory.
