Indiana State Police warning parents about drug laced candy

Posted: Updated:
INDIANA (WFIE) -

Indiana State Police is warning parents after troopers and area police find candy laced with THC in Southwest Indiana.

THC is the chemical compound found in marijuana that provides a "high" to the user.

ISP says most of the candy found by troopers resembles suckers, hard-rock candy and gummy worms and bears. They say the candies look so much like regular candy that children or even adults wouldn't hesitate to consume them.

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

If you have any information concerning THC candies contact the Indiana State Police at (800) 852-3970.
