Pot-Infused Halloween Candy Is a Worry in Colorado – Slate Magazine (blog)

The Denver Police Department has issued a PSA on its Facebook page warning parents about marijuana-infused trick-or-treat candy.
“With Halloween fast approaching, Colorado citizens are in a unique position in the country, watching our kid’s candy for marijuana edibles,” a Denver Police statement said.
“There is really no way a child or a parent or even an expert in the field to tell you whether a product is infused or not,” said Patrick Johnson, the owner of Urban Dispensary in Denver.
The police department recommends parents throw away candy with tampered-with wrappers or from unrecognizable sources. Since Jan. 1, people have been able to buy pot in Colorado for recreational use.
