Weeding out the potentially dangerous candy from kids’ Halloween hauls has become more difficult.
Pennsylvania police are warning parents to be extra-vigilant about checking their children’s candy this year after officers made a number of “drug-infused candy” seizures over the past week. Laffy Taffy, Airheads, Nerds and Wonka have been found to be infused with THC and psychedelic mushrooms, according to Pennsylvania State Police.
Because the wrappers look identical to the real McCoys, the candy “could easily be overlooked during the Halloween season,” a spokesman says.
Has trick-or-treating become too dangerous? Is it time for the U.S. to do away with Halloween? Thanks, Killabrew.
