Drug-laced Candy in PA

Drug-laced Candy in PA

Do you ever wonder what ways young people are coming up with to hide drugs? Do you ever worry that around Halloween time bad things might happen? Do you know if your child, or children in your extended family, use illegal drugs? Drug dealers and drug addicts have all kinds of ingenious ways to hide their illegal drugs from parents, school authority figures, and law enforcement. And in Pennsylvania, the drugs are getting harder to detect as clever dealers hide them in hard candy. In one police raid, officers seized more than 40 pounds of drug-laced hard candy from a college campus right before Halloween this year.

The candy is loaded with THC, the active component in marijuana, and significant doses of it were found. NBC Philadelphia reports that a 24-year-old student, at the university, West Chester University, is behind this innovation in drug distribution and disguising. And though it's most likely that he was only intending to sell his drug-laced candy to other students, parents, residents, and police officers all expressed concern that the candy could find its way into the hands-and mouths-of children.

Do you have kids? Do you have children who are of university-age? Do you ever wonder if they're hiding drug use from you, finding some way to take drugs right under your nose? Marijuana isn't even the most harmful drug, meth, heroin, PCP, Molly, and cocaine are also used with great frequency by young people. And abused prescription drugs like OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin are even deadlier, accounting for 75% of all overdose deaths.
