Police Warn of Drug-Laced Candy

Candy could be laced with THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

A Chester County police department warned parents last week via a post on its Facebook page that a new form of drug delivery has been seen in the area and parents should be careful about kids having items that could be laced with drugs.

A report on WPVI Channel 6's website says that candy made with THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, was found recently in Montgomery County.

Police told Fox Philadelphia that the drug-laced candies look like any other candies.

Police are cautioning parents to be careful.

As an addiction psychologist in Philadelphia and the Main Line this is nothing new during the past 20 years. Drugs have always been hidden or delivered in various food products or new packaging and marketing methods. It is especially problematic when there are younger children in the house. As marijuana and THC have become more potent over the years the ways of ingesting it have changed too. It is really important that families become involved in treatment for drug and alcohol problems to ensure safety for the whole family and to provide support for the individual using drugs or alcohol.
