Denver police warn parents how to watch out for marijuana candy

With Halloween fast approaching, Colorado citizens are in a unique position in the country–watching our kid’s candy for marijuana edibles. The Denver Police Department cautions that marijuana edibles can be literally identical to their name-brand counterparts.  The video features the owner of Urban Dispensary, Patrick Johnson, talking about telling the difference between actual candy and edibles. He says edibles account for 20-30 percent of sales in his shop. Manufacturers typically infuse knockoff candy bought in bulk, so Johnson said parents should toss any candy that isn’t in familiar packaging or in a tampered package. Be sure to watch this important reminder about sweets safety for all your little trick-or-treaters this year.
