Police say a potent new drug that looks like lip balm is exploding in popularity in metro Atlanta.

According to police there are several names for the drug including Honeycomb, Butter and Wax.

“It can be carried around in a bag, hidden in plain sight basically,” said Roswell Police Officer Zachary Frommer.

The drug is made from the oils of marijuana plants and has a very high concentration of THC.

“Joints you'd smoke could equal a dose of the wax,” said Frommer.

Roswell Police discovered 80 grams of Wax during a major drug bust at a home.

Roswell Police say they believe the people arrested in the drug bust were likely selling to high school kids because it's easy to transport and hide. They have received complaints from parents at Roswell High School.

Police say Wax is easy to transport and easy to conceal. The drug has the consistency of wax and can be molded into various shapes or simply tiny, round balls. It is often found hidden in jars of lip balm, because it is basically the same color and texture.
