Halloween Candy Reefer Madness? NJ Chart Warns of Pot Dangers
A chart being circulated on social media around New Jersey is warning about the dangers of marijuana candy being handed out to Halloween trick or treaters.
The chart, distributed by the New Jersey State Police Drug Monitoring Initiative, and being shared by police departments and county prosecutors, urges parents to be aware of marijuana candy possibly being distributed to children as they go trick-or-treating this Halloween.
The information, which points out there is no evidence anyone has anyone intentionally handing out pot candy, lists symptoms parents should look for if they suspect their kids have eaten any of the pot edibles, including dry mouth, paranoia and increased appetite.
The marijuana edibles chart seems to have a certain over-the-top quality about it, and, on the posting I read, not everyone was taking it quite as seriously as intended. Several comments requested that the people with the edible pot please stop by at their house on Halloween.
