San Francisco blast suspect knows smoke 

She’s really exploded onto the marijuana scene in San Francisco.

Angelic Cisneros, who was arrested after a home explosion in the Ingleside district Tuesday that was apparently caused by a hash-manufacturing snafu, was the organizer of a failed bid in 2010 for a San Francisco medical marijuana farmers market.

Cisneros, 33, and a 12-year-old boy suffered burns in the blast at 1228 Capitol Ave., police spokesman Sgt. Daryl Fong said. The injuries were not life-threatening.

After her release from the hospital, Cisneros was booked Wednesday on multiple charges, including two counts of child endangerment, recklessly causing a fire and possession of marijuana for sale, Fong said.

Police believe the home’s occupants were attempting to make drugs when a butane tank exploded, Fong said.

Investigators have not revealed what drugs were being made, but sources said it was hash oil. The use of butane for chemical extraction — including for the production of hash oil — is illegal in California, San Francisco attorney Alexis Briggs said.

Child Protective Services is set to take custody of the 12-year-old after he is released from the hospital, Fong said. Investigators have not revealed his relationship to Cisneros.

A booking photo of Cisneros released Thursday showed a face that appeared burned and without eyebrows.

Cisneros has made headlines as a marijuana advocate. In July 2010, the medical cannabis patient attempted to organize the so-called San Francisco Cannabis Farmers Market at a bar near AT&T Park. The bar owner later nixed the idea, claiming Cisneros lied and said she was planning a birthday party at the venue.

At the time, Cisneros told The San Francisco Examiner she was only trying to bring medical marijuana patients, providers and growers together. She also said she was trying to start a regular marketplace in anticipation of the passage of state Proposition 19, which failed to pass but would have legalized marijuana for recreational use statewide.
