Halloweed? Denver Police Warn About Pot-Infused Candy

The Denver Police Department is warning parents to keep an eye out for marijuana-laced candy in their children’s trick-or-treat hauls this Halloween to ensure the only buzz the kids get is a sugar high. The department posted a video on their Facebook page featuring Patrick Johnson, the owner of a Denver marijuana shop called Urban Dispensary. Johnson explains that pot-infused treats are often just mass-produced candy that’s been sprayed with hash oil. “Once that candy dries, there’s really no way to tell the difference between infused candy and candy that’s not infused,” Johnson said in the video. Johnson and the Denver Police Department urge parents to inspect any candy their trick-or-treaters bring home to make sure it’s in original packaging that hasn’t been tampered with.

Yep! All these years and it's happened 0 times! Thanks propaganda!

Matt Corry exactly. There's actually a campaign running out here in AZ, saying Colorado is warning them NOT to legalize - says crime went way up and so did traffic fatalities.

Doreen Meyer so sad.......the only thing that went up was the economy, housing and rent prices. would only benefit AZ......especially Tucson....

Linda Turner that's actually why I can't live in CO! ;)

Linda, My rent has almost doubled here in CO. I wish they would make it federally legal, so people stop moving here!

Linda Turner

Doreen Meyer - Yeah, its certainly expensive. Born and raised here and its tough but I would rather be poor here than in AZ. Just my opinion.....I tried to live there, it just wasn't worth my happiness............:) but I am old and you are young so you have plenty of time to live all over

Matt Corry Oh, Matt, I get it. It is pretty bad. They will never put a cap on it. It won't stop until others legalize. No one will convince me it is not the cause. It was not like this before. Not much we can do about it other than try to keep our heads above water and hope other states take action, then it will slow down..............maybe even stop. :/

You really think someone's going to waste $25.00 on a candy bar, to get a child high? The media is so f*****d, it's hilarious.

You know how expensive it is? No one is going to be giving away their edibles for free, trust me.

They made this a huge deal last year and not a single incident. Anyone that buys those edibles wouldn't ever give them to kids cause they cost so much money. What's the point?

The saving grace, really, is that weed-infused products are probably soooo expensive that only a real perverted person would buy them and hand them out.

Damian Vander Weg

This is soo annoying every year since this turns into a discussion. First off edibles are not cheap and second no stoner is giving away there stash for free! So nothing to worry about lol

Tami Gibson

Please, for safety, can someone put together a map of these home handing out weed candy. So I can be sure to avoid them.....

Mary Catherine McPherson

I too think that it's a matter of public safety. We need to know which neighborhoods will be handing out edibles.
