BRIDGESTON, NJ -- A warning is going out to parents before Halloween – watch out for marijuana candy in your kids trick-or-treat bags!
The warning comes from the Cumberland County, New Jersey prosecutor’s office. They say there’s a lot of marijuana candy and other forms of edible marijuana in New Jersey and surrounding states.
They say the candy poses a great risk to users, especially children who they fear may accidentally receive marijuana candy while trick-or-treating.
They say parents should check for unusual candy packaging, such as plastic bags. They also say there’s no indication anyone would give out the marijuana candy on purpose.
