LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is warning parents to closely inspect children's Halloween treats after finding increasing amounts of marijuana-laced cookies, candies, cereal snacks and even bottled soda in circulation.
Narcotics detectives said Friday that edible marijuana products contain several threats, including concentrated amounts of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in pot, chemical solvents used to extract THC from the marijuana plant, and unsanitary conditions in which the products are prepared.
Jonathan Fielding, LA County director of public health, terms the products a significant health threat because there are too many unknowns in their manufacture.
The items are often packaged to resemble commercial snacks and to appeal to kids.
