Halloween Is Upon Us!
Our little ones will be enjoying Halloween costumes, parties, trick or treating, and eating lots of candy! As parents, we need to be aware of what our children are receiving when trick or treating. Although local law enforcement has not seen an issue at Halloween with marijuana "edibles" candy, that doesn't mean we don't need to remain vigilant.
Marijuana edibles contain up to 95% THC, which is the chemical that effects the brain and takes approximately 30 minutes to take effect. Marijuana is being infused as "edibles" in candy that is marketed to kids such as "Sour Patch Kids", "Gummy Bears", and other candies that appeal to kids.
Parents, make sure your kids know to not accept any candy that is not factory sealed and that is not from a reputable manufacturer. If it does not look right, it probably is not right! It is better to throw the candy away and be safe than sorry!
