Law enforcement officials in Minnesota seized 75,000 THC vaping cartridges in Anoka County Monday.

Officials believe the cartridges came from outside of the state and were to be distributed in Minnesota. The drug bust took place in New Hope, Minn.

The seizure of the THC cartridges is worrisome to officials due to the rising number of vaping-related hospitalizations across the country, in which some patients reported vaping THC.

Law enforcement officials in Kenosha County busted a multi-million dollar THC vaping cartridge operation in early September.
