Everything that your parents told you about the dangers of Halloween candy is true. NBC Philadelphia reports that 40 pounds of Halloween candy laced with THC was taken from an on-campus apartment at West Chester University last week.
According to prosecutors in the Chester County District Attorney's office, police located the drugs after noticing the scent of marjiuana eminating from a parked car with several students inside. That's where authorities found dozens of baggies containing candy in various shapes, sizes and colors. (Yes, some of it even looked like Walt's blue meth from Breaking Bad.)
Chief Deputy District Attorney Patrick Carmody said that a 24-year-old student was behind the operation, and presumably planned to distribute free candy samples to generate demand, then sell to anyone interested in securing more. The suspect has yet to be identified because no charges have been filed, but Carmody expects him to be charged in the near future.
Carmody also said that the drugs were intended for people "college-age and above," convinced that the student had no intention of giving the candy to children.
