Winnipeg police are warning parents to check their children’s Halloween bags after receiving half a dozen reports of cannabis edibles in kids’ treats on Monday.
The cannabis edibles were packaged to look like the popular Nerds candy. They were discovered in children’s bags after trick-or-treating in the Tuxedo neighbourhood.
The packages say they contain 600 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main psychoactive property of marijuana. Canada’s maximum THC potency for edibles is 10 milligrams.
The edibles were found inside zipped sandwich bags along with full-size chocolate bars, police said. The reports came from a small area in south Tuxedo, Const. Dani McKinnon said.
