Po­lice seize gummy bears laced with ac­tive cannabis in­gre­di­ent

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

LAVAL, Que. — It’s highly un­likely these gummy bears are avail­able at the cor­ner store. Po­lice near Mon­treal say they seized a small quan­tity of ju­jubes in May that tests even­tu­ally showed were laced with THC, the ac­tive in­gre­di­ent in cannabis. Laval po­lice sergeant Fred­eric Jean says of­fi­cers stum­bled on the spe­cial sweets af­ter they spot­ted young­sters smok­ing mar­i­juana. There were red ones, green ones and yel­low ones and all had a fruity smell. Jean says the dis­cov­ery was a first for the po­lice depart­ment. Author­i­ties are warn­ing the public to be vig­i­lant and also ask­ing for help in find­ing the per­son or peo­ple who made the candies.
