August 24, 2017

Carnesville, Georgia - On Monday, August 7, 2017, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and the Appalachian Regional Drug Enforcement Office (RDEO) arrested Kyle Lamar Myers, 31, after he received approximately 25 grams of “butane honey oil,” a marijuana concentrate.  Myers received the substance through the United States Postal Service in Carnesville.  Myers is also known as “FPS RUSSIA,” an internet personality with videos on YouTube.

Franklin County authorities and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms also executed a search warrant at Myers’ residence, located at 7643 Royston Road in Carnesville.  Numerous weapons, drug paraphernalia, and a quantity of butane honey oil were seized during the search

A marijuana concentrate is a highly potent THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) concentrated mass that is most similar in appearance to honey or butter. Marijuana concentrates contain extraordinarily high THC levels that can range from 40 to 80%.  This form of marijuana can be up to four times stronger in THC content than high grade or top shelf marijuana, which normally measures around 20% THC levels. Butane Honey Oil has a street value of up to $150 per gram compared to $30 for traditional marijuana.  Marijuana and marijuana concentrates are illegal in Georgia.

Myers was charged with possession of a schedule one substance with the intent to distribute (felony) and possession of drug related objects (misdemeanor).  Myers was transported to the Franklin County Detention Center.
