Indiana State Police warn parents about candy laced with THC

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana State Police are warning parents that troopers and local police departments have been finding candy laced with THC in Southwest Indiana.

THC is the chemical compound found in marijuana that provides a "high" to the user.

According to a news release from the Indiana State Police post in Evansville, 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.

Police are encouraging parents to inspect their children's candy and to 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.
