Hey Parents!

Without looking closely, you would never know that these candies, that bear a striking resemblance to ordinary candy, is actually THC infused edibles.

Children would not know or see the difference so it's up to us as parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters, to be vigilant.
