A tweet warning parents about THC-laced Halloween candy gets some high-larious responses

Halloween is right around the corner, and this year, many children will get to return to in-person trick-or-treating. Sure, parents should always be careful when dealing with candy from strangers, but this reporter’s overzealous tweet about the dangers of weed edibles is taking it a bit far.

BEWARE: As Halloween gets closer, @BensalemPolice are warning parents to LOOK at your child’s candy before they eat…

Her tweet vehemently cautioned parents to “LOOK at you child’s candy before they eat it,” with the added warning that though the snacks “looked like the real thing … ALL are laced with THC.” Laced, really? Has this lady never stepped into a dispensary?

Twitter had some hilarious responses, to say the least, and thus an entire “Halloweed” thread was created:

One person decided to flip the script, urging parents to search their stash:

And of course, a few (stoners, to be sure) were curious where they too could score some free space snacks:

So parents, the moral of this story is: If you’re out trick-or-treating with your little one and find a piece of candy with that special five-leaf insignia on the package, keep it for yourself. After all, you probably deserve your own kind of “sugar high.”
