A Kennewick mother says she was trying to save money by making her own THC hash oil at home. Lenne S. Parsons sat her four young kids down with lunch, then returned to her laundry room/bathroom to continue her experiment based on YouTube videos. She thought the room had enough ventilation, but then, “Poof.” The mother and one of her sons were injured. Parsons was indicted in May for the Dec. 13 explosion inside her West 15th Place home. Last week, she pleaded guilty in Richland’s U.S. District Court to one count of endangering human life while manufacturing hash oil and marijuana. Her plea was part of a deferred prosecution agreement, which means her case will be dismissed in 1 1/2 years if she doesn’t commit another crime or intentionally violate any conditions of her release. Her sentencing is scheduled for April 2021. If Parsons gets into any trouble before then, federal Judge Sal Mendoza Jr. can sentence her to a maximum of 10 years in prison.
