California police warn parents after child ingests THC-infused candy received at Halloween school event

Police in California are warning parents to check their children’s candy during Halloween after a child reportedly fell ill from ingesting a THC-infused candy received at a local trick-or-treating event over the weekend.

The Alameda Police Department on Monday asked parents to “exercise extra caution and inspect your child’s Halloween candy” while they investigated an incident that required a child to seek immediate medical attention after consuming a cannabis candy.

The “Trunk or Treat” event where the pot-infused candies are believed to have been handed out was held at Alameda’s Amelia Earhart Elementary School on Sunday, FOX2 KTVU reported.

Susan Davis, the senior manager for community affairs for the Alameda Unified School District, told the station that the child’s parents checked the candy that the student got from the event and found a wrapper that says it is cannabis infused.

Police said if there is any doubt about the authenticity of the candy, parents should err on the side of caution and discard the sweets.
