Indiana State Police warn parents of medicated candy during Halloween

Police warn the candy can look very much like the original.

LOWELL, Ind. — Indiana State Police are putting out a warning about medicated candy during Halloween this year.

Troopers recently made a bust in northern Indiana that included marijuana edibles. Police warn the candy can look very much like the original. 

ISP said parents should look closely to see if the word "medicated" is on any of the packaging.

The warning said in part: "Please thoroughly check all candy and don't assume it's 'OK' just because it looks 'OK.'"

Police also busted a woman in St. Joseph County who allegedly had 52 marijuana edibles, 33 THC vape cartridges labeled 90 percent THC, about 5 ounces of suspected marijuana, marijuana wax, and multiple different pills identified as controlled substances.

ISP said a search of the woman's jeep found: 52 marijuana edibles, 33 THC vape cartridges labeled 90% THC, approximately 5 ounces of suspected marijuana, marijuana wax, and multiple different pills identified as controlled substances.

Stacia Schrock, 41, was arrested for possession of a legend drug, possession of schedule II and IV controlled substance, dealing marijuana, and possession of marijuana.

Police say there's no evidence the person booked for possessing the medicated candies had any intention of giving them to children, but they wanted it to be a warning for what to watch out for anyway.

The candy companies definitely aren't laughing. State police say they've been in contact with the companies who said the packaging is not an authorized use of their logos.
