Drug Arrests: Feds Aren’t Laughing About Missing Gas [NBC]

On Aug. 14, Hartford police arrested eight people, some from Pennsylvania, and seized 18 tanks of nitrous oxide and inflated balloons at the Phish concert in the Comcast Theater.

Those suspects were charged with possession of a restricted substance and possession with intent to sell.

“Nitrous oxide is not defined as a controlled substance but is considered a restricted substance,” John Gadea, director of the drug control division of the state Department of Consumer Protection said. “What that means is, possession does not become a violation unless the use deviates from its commercial application.”
