It must be Halloween season because I just saw the first news story about a kid “accidently” given edibles at a Halloween event.
I, personally, am of the firm belief that this has never actually happened and if it DID actually happen, there can’t be more than 4 honest cases of it nationwide over the last 20 years.
I’ll get into the reasons why (I mean, just think about it for a second) in a bit, but let’s take a look at the latest 5-year-old who came home with a trick-or-treat bag filled with more than just sugar.
This story takes us down to the St. Louis area in suburban Missouri, where a woman found a package of “Delta 8” gummies in her child’s bag after they got home.
Tiffany Burroughs is the mother’s name and she found the goofy gummies after her three children attended a Trunk-or-Treat event at a local restaurant that hosts monthly car shows.
Burroughs said she noticed an unusual package of gummy worms in a candy bowl but didn’t think much about it until she inspected the children’s candy at home.
The package was labeled as “Delta 8” which is a cannabinoid found in the Sativa plant.
DISCLAIMER: I am not a parent and don’t know how a parent should/would act in certain situations.
HOWEVER, I do believe that if I was taking my 5 year-old child around to sample bowls of candy from strangers and one of these strangers had something “weird” sitting in their bowl, I would inspect it right there on site, not let my kid walk around with it and wait to check it when we got home.
