(NEWS RELEASE) -- Indiana State Police want to warn parents that troopers and area police are finding candy laced with Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in Southwest Indiana.
THC is the chemical compound found in marijuana that provides a “high” to the user.
Most of the candy found by troopers resembles suckers, hard-rock candy and gummy worms and bears. These candies look so much like regular candy that children or even adults wouldn’t hesitate to consume them.
Indiana State Police encourage parents to inspect their children’s candy and be suspicious of unwrapped or re-wrapped candy in unfamiliar packaging.
If you have any information concerning THC candies, you are encouraged to contact the Indiana State Police at 1-800-852-3970.
