Tyler Huffhines is charged with maintaining a drug house and three counts of possession with intent to deliver THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

According to the criminal complaint, the 20-year-old flew to California last month to buy the substance in bulk.

Authorities say he employed at least 10 people to fill 3,000-5,000 cartridges per day and sell them for $15 each.

Police arrested Huffhines earlier this month and he’s being held on $500,000 bail.

His arrest comes as health officials across the country investigate hundreds of breathing illnesses reported in people who used vaping devices recently.
