Police Warn Of Edibles On Halloween Being Handed Out To Children, But Come On, No One Is Doing That
Every year around this time, the folk tales start circling the news publications. Look out for razor blades in candied apples. People are lacing drugs in candies. Someone is putting glass bits in the chocolate bars being handed out to children. Most of these stupid ass stories never happen, but whip people up into a frenzy. This Halloween, we are being treated to this insane theory, which is for sure not happening anywhere. Police have issued a warning about THC-laced candies to children. Let me know the street, I will be there.
Rolling Stone says people are really believing that someone would waste perfectly good edibles by handing them out to ungrateful children. These villains are likely the same people who shoot up marijuana. The Johnstown Police Department posted this warning to their Facebook account after a drug-seizing featuring edibles:
Um? You really think those people were going to give them out to children? Who the fuck would waste weed edibles like that? There is no one stupid enough to do that. If you want to sew chaos, getting the kids stoned ain’t going to do that.
When reached for comment, Captain Chad Miller of the Johnstown Police Department told Rolling Stone there was “absolutely no evidence” the edibles going to be distributed to trick-or-treaters:
“In Pennsylvania, marijuana is still illegal. We don’t have edibles. There is no education. We just want to make sure everyone is aware this is out there.”
He also denied that the post was intended to say trick-or-treaters were targets and instead it was just to: “raise awareness.” Awareness of what? Not letting children around your edibles because it’s a waste of edibles? Yes. I approve that message.
