Police in California are warning parents to check their children’s Halloween candy after a child fell ill from consuming a THC-infused candy received at a local trick-or-treating event.

The “Trunk or Treat” event where the pot-infused candies were handed out was held at Alameda’s Amelia Earhart Elementary School.

The Alameda Police Department urged parents to take precautions, including checking their child’s candy for unusual packaging and tampering, educating their children about not eating candies that are not in their original packaging or have not been checked by their parents, and discarding any sweets if there is any doubt about their authenticity.

Susan Davis, the senior manager for community affairs for the Alameda Unified School District, said, “Cannabis-infused candy can look a lot like real candy, so it’s really important for parents to check the candy this year.”

Beth Meloy, a parent who attended the event with her child, said THC-infused candy looked like a “standalone Starburst.”

“Meloy said her child received the candy at the event and that she only noticed the packaging difference after getting emails and calls from other parents and the school,” the report added. (Trending: Joe Biden Historic Take Down of Guns)

“Police said that many THC-infused candies can closely resemble popular name brand sweets, sharing several photos of name-brand candy next to cannabis products that have similar packaging.”
