Halloween Candy May Contain Marijuana, Denver Police Warn

Oct 16, 2014 -- 1:43pm

From Huffington Post

 

With marijuana now legal in Colorado and cannabis candy a big part of the scene, Denver police are issuing an unusual warning ahead of Halloween. In short, they want people to know that not all candy is for kids.

“With edibles gaining in popularity we thought it was important to alert the community to the possibility that it's easy to mistake what looks like regular candy with a marijuana edible,” Denver police spokesman Lt. Matt Murray told Fox31 Denver.

The department recruited Patrick Johnson, owner of Urban Dispensary, to create a video (above) showing how pot candies can resemble traditional candies. Johnson said some manufacturers of "knocked-off candy" buy sweets in bulk and then spray them with hash oil. Once the oil dries, there's no way to tell the difference.

“The problem is that some of these products look so similar to candy that’s been on the market, that we’ve eaten as children, that there’s really no way for a child or a parent or anybody, even an expert in the field, to tell you whether or not a product is infused,” Johnson said in the video.

He said that if kids bring home candy that don't look like something from a recognizable brand, toss it.

However, some believe this may be unnecessary fear-mongering.

"This is just another way for those who most benefit from marijuana prohibition to try to convince the public that prohibition protects children," wrote the Ladybud blog. "The real message here is that the average citizen should be wary of cannabis users; they might want to drug your kids and get them 'hooked' too."

Jacob Sullum, a contributor to the Forbes website, writes that the warning seems to fit the pattern of other, often unconfirmed, Halloween candy scares.

Exploding Marijuana Soda Bottles Vex Cannabis Retailers In Washington

Oct 09, 2014 -- 1:12pm

From Huffington Post

 

Stores in Washington state selling a marijuana-infused soda are having an unusual problem with the inventory: It's exploding.

"It sounded like a shotgun going off," Zach Henifin, manager of Top Shelf Cannabis in Bellingham, told KOMO News. "You can actually feel it, it was that explosive."

The store, one of many in the state selling marijuana products since doing so became legal earlier this year, had ordered 331 bottles of the sparkling pomegranate drink.

The explosions were dangerous enough that the store had to move the bottles into a steel bin. And when handling the bottles, workers had to wear a facial shield for protection.

"It's almost like bomb box because they randomly go off during the day," Henifin told the station.

The shop is one of three that has reported exploding marijuana soda issues. Mirth Provisions, which makes the soda, blames the problem on yeast.

"It was simply the fact that his batch had a higher yeast concentration, and one of the byproducts of yeast is excess carbon dioxide," Adam Stites, founder of Mirth, told Hemp.org.

The company has been having problems with the bottles for more than a month now.

In early September, The Columbian reported that the tops of the bottles were popping off, a defect then blamed on the wrong bottle type. Several weeks later, however, the top-popping issue popped up again.

Stites said the problem has since been resolved.
