DENVER, Oct. 16 (UPI) —
The Denver Police Department has created a public service announcement warning parents to be wary of marijuana-infused Halloween candy.
The video, created in partnership with Urban Dispensary pot shop owner Patrick Johnson, warns parents that marijuana-infused candy can be virtually indistinguishable from regular candy.
Johnson says the companies that make the marijuana-infused candy tend to use "knock-off" products because they are cheaper. He recommends parents throw out candy that doesn’t appear to be from a recognizable company.
"With Halloween fast approaching, Colorado citizens are in a unique position in the country — watching our kid’s candy for marijuana edibles," police said.
