“A warning for all parents and students as kids head back to school: if you are offered what appears to be candy, it could in fact be candy laced with drugs. It can be in the form of hard candies like Jolly Ranchers or lollipops, appear to be a fruit roll-up, a chocolate candy bar, or gummy bears to name a few. Please warn your children and friends about the danger of taking candy from strangers or really anyone.” Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said.
Gahanna police dropped by the couple’s home to execute a search warrant, where they found batches of the THC-laced candies. This was on top of other undisclosed drugs and supplies, all to aid in their efforts to make laced candy.
