Marchman Act Blog: Calif. Trick-Or-Treaters Warned Of Pot-Laced Candy
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department issued the warning to parents in light of candy and snacks containing marijuana being confiscated from pot dispensaries.
The warning comes days before Californians vote on Proposition 19, a marijuana legalization measure.
California has state laws allowing the medical use of marijuana, but the sheriff's department said the confiscated items were untested and unlicensed.
Officials said in their warning that parents should check Halloween candy and other snacks for indications the items were tampered with.
