Beasley's attorney, Brian Michaels, said this is the first time he has heard of a blast caused by someone legally making hash oil. Without knowing more specifics of the case, he likened it to an unfortunate accident rather than a crime.
"If he's doing something legally, and it's not a dangerous act in general — thousands of people do it, nobody gets hurt — what's the crime?" Michaels said. "Just because there's an injury doesn't mean there's a crime."
