Police have seized more than 40 pounds of drug-laced candy from a West Chester University campus apartment, tainted with THC, the active chemical ingredient in marijuana. Police say the hard candy coated with THC was most likely intended for the student population at the university (not unsuspecting trick-or-treaters). The 24-year-old WCU student accused of possessing the drugged candy has already been suspended and ordered off campus. The student now “faces serious criminal charges.”
Deputy District Attorney Patrick Carmody told ABC local, “I don’t think these drugs at all were intended for kids. The problem is the recklessness of the individual in this case who’s using these drugs in this form, is then they get out in the public.” We’re so not thinking about making these candies to give out at our Halloween party this Thursday.
