Police warn of candy laced with THC

Herald Staff Writer

Indiana State Police are warning 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.

The doctored candies look so much like regular candy that children or even adults wouldn’t hesitate to consume them, police said.

State police encourage parents to inspect their children’s candy and be suspicious of unwrapped or re-wrapped candy in unfamiliar packaging.

Anyone with information about the THC candies is encouraged to contact the Indiana State Police at 1-800-852-3970.
