EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Indiana State Police are warning parents that authorities are finding candy laced with tetrahydrocannabinol, the active ingredient in marijuana, in southwest Indiana.

State police say most of the candy found by troopers resembles lollipops, hard-rock candy and gummy worms and bears. Police say the candies look so much like regular candy that children or even adults wouldn’t hesitate to consume them.

State police are encouraging parents to inspect their children’s candy and be suspicious of unwrapped or re-wrapped candy in unfamiliar packaging.
