Indiana State Police: Check your kids’ candy this Halloween
INDIANAPOLIS— Indiana State Police have a warning for parents this Halloween—check your kids’ candy.
State police said Monday that over the weekend, a trooper with the Lowell post seized packages that look like typical candy bags.
“While they are packaged and marketed to look like candy, they’re not. You have to look closely to see the ‘medicated’ wording,” police wrote in their post on Facebook.
The packaging is labeled with the names of well-known candy brands but include marijuana plants printed on the bags and the term “medicated.”
In the photos shared by police, the California warning label printed on the bags indicates that the contents contain cannabis.
“Please thoroughly check all candy and don’t assume it’s okay just because it looks okay,” police wrote.
The Lowell post covers Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Starke, Pulaski, Jasper and Newton counties.
