The Massena Police Department in St. Lawrence County has issued a warning after the marijuana gummies were allegedly given out to trick-or-treaters. The police department posted about it on its Facebook page, including the photo of an unopened pack of gummies above. The message said,

Massena area people. Please check your children’s trick-or-treating candy before they eat any. The picture of the bag attached (edibles for adults) was located from a local trick-or-treater. If you locate a similar bag of 'candy,' please bring it to the Massena Police Department with information on where you trick-or-treated.

According to Syracuse.com, the edible cannabis candy labeled as Sour Bites Ragin’ Reds contains 600 mg of THC.

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid extracted from the cannabis (marijuana) plant.

The marijuana candies seem to be an unauthorized copy of a legitimate candy sold in grocery stores. According to Amazon, the unadulterated version - Sour Punch Bites, Rad Reds - sells for $20.69 for a 12-pack of 5-ounce bags. The packaging for the cannabis version is very similar to the candy sold at regular retail locations.

According to KushGoody.com, the version of the candy with THC starts at $25 per bag. It's not clear if police have a motive for the distribution of the edibles or any information on who passed them out to underage trick-or-treaters.
