The Long Beach Police Department would like to warn parents about marijuana laced candy, and encourage the community to practice safety tips to ensure a fun and safe Halloween.
Can you identify which candies pictured in this photo are laced with marijuana? Surprisingly, all of them! These candies were found at various Long Beach marijuana dispensaries and may or may not come packaged. Parents are encouraged to check the candy their children bring home, and to dispose of anything that is not factory sealed. If unsure, but something looks or smells suspicious, get rid of it immediately. Although there have been no reported incidents in Long Beach where a child unknowingly ingested marijuana laced candy, parents should still take every precaution.
Other Halloween safety tips that are just as important are as follows:
Reminder: The curfew law in Long Beach prohibits anyone 17 years old or younger from being out past 10:00 p.m. without a parent/guardian, unless going to or returning home from work or an organized event supervised by an adult, without any detour or stop.
