Denver police warns that Halloween candy could be laced with marijuana

Now that marijuana is legal in Colorado, parents have a new worry: pot-laced candy that could end up in their kids' Halloween baskets.

In a video released earlier this week, Denver police warned that the marijuana treats, which are popular in local dispensaries, are virtually indistinguishable from the kind that give you nothing more than a sugar high.

In the video, parents are told not to accept candy that "isn't in familiar packaging or in a tampered package," according to The Washington Post.
