PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY, Maryland — Police in Maryland offered a warning to parents after announcing they seized pot-laced candy the week of Halloween. “Parents: be aware of suspicious Halloween candy,” police tweeted.

Police said they seized 80 pieces of the marijuana-infused candy in Laurel, Maryland.  The boxes arrived from the west coast and Colorado.

“This is the first time we’ve seen this product in Prince George’s County. Despite the on-going investigation, we felt it important to let our community know that products like this exist so parents and guardians ensure the candy doesn’t somehow wind up in their children’s Halloween candy bag,” Captain Chuck Hamby said.

“The candy includes taffy, mint chocolate bars, blueberry chocolate bars and banana-walnut chocolate bars. Each piece of this candy contains 100 milligrams of THC,” county police wrote on its website.
