JOHNSTOWN, Pa. — Discovery of drug-laced candy sparked a police department to issue a warning to parents.

Johnstown police say they found Nerds rope candy containing 400 mg of THC, the psychoactive chemical in marijuana, during a search.

“During this Halloween, we urge parents to be ever vigilant in checking their children’s candy before allowing them to consume those treats,” police said in a Facebook post.

Police say drug-laced candies can be in packages similar to regular candy and could make it difficult to distinguish them from real candy.
