THC Found in Colorado Town's Water Supply

THC was found in the water supply in the town of Hugo.

Officials reported that tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly referred to as THC, was detected in the small town of Hugo, Colorado's water supply. THC is the principal psychoactive chemical in cannabis, which is legalized recreationally in Colorado.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the FBI are helping to continue testing in order to determine the level of concentration. According to a Denver Post report, signs of tampering were found on one of the five main wells that supply water to the town 100 miles southeast of Denver.

A reverse 911 call went out to Hugo residents, asking them not to drink the water. The sheriff's office also updated via social media, asking residents not to drink the water.

Health effects of ingesting drinking water contaminated with THC depend on several factors, including how much THC is in the water, how much water a person drinks, and how long they are drinking the water.
