THC is the active ingredient in marijuana that gives people a high. According to, police in Johnstown, Pennsylvania posted a warning on their Facebook page, saying, “During this Halloween, we urge parents to be ever vigilant in checking their children’s candy before allowing them to consume those treats. Drug-laced edibles are packaged like regular candy and can be hard to distinguish from the real candy.”

Be careful parents! Check the kids’ bags thoroughly!
