Authorities in Prince George’s County, Maryland seized several boxes of what they described as marijuana-laced candy two days before Halloween. The candy, which authorities say found its way to Maryland from the West Coast and Colorado, is infused with 100 milligrams of THC.
“This is the first time we’ve seen this product in Prince George’s County. Despite the on-going investigation, we felt it important to let our community know that products like this exist so parents and guardians ensure the candy doesn’t somehow wind up in their children’s Halloween candy bag,” said Captain Chuck Hamby, Narcotic Enforcement Division Assistant Commander.
Authorities are tight-lipped with details of where or how the goodies were discovered, but did confirm that the candy included taffy, mint chocolate bars, blueberry chocolate bars and banana-walnut chocolate bars.
