Warning: Be on the Lookout For Drug-Laced Candy
While I highly doubt that anyone with drug-laced candies would intentionally (even accidentally in all reality) give them away, the DEA is still warning people. The Drug Enforcement Administration is warning first responders and parents to be on the lookout for candy laced with marijuana and methamphetamine.
I went through all of my stepson's candy. Looked at every piece, even tasted a few (LOL), and none of them were "drug-laced." It's it weird that I'm not sure whether to be happy or mad about that? KIDDING!
According to the DEA press release, the packaging for the fake candy often looks nearly identical to the real thing, with similar logos and names. Last year, the DEA found marijuana-laced candies sold in packages labeled Munchy Way, 3 Rastateers, Buddahfinger, Twixed, Keef Kat and Rasta Reese’s, among others.
Other signs that you may have laced candy: Unusual wrapping, appearance, unusual colors, odd smell, misspelled candy labels, candy or food that is unwrapped or unmarked.
