No One is Giving Your Kids Edibles On Halloween

It's exactly at the title states, and yes I'm being blunt about it (pun intended). No one in their right mind is going to give your kids edibles, they're not even going to mix it up with the regular candy. It's just not going to happen. Why? That stuff is expensive! 

As more and more states legalize marijuana in the United States these paranoid stories keep popping up, and this year is no exception. There's no shortage of them either. The latest, happening in Bensalem, Pennsylvania where an police found edibles on someone that was intending to sell them. 

How exactly that got turned into "giving away edibles to kids on Halloween" is beyond me, but some folks will do anything for a story out there.

For starters, that story this time has happened in September, a full month away from Halloween. Second of all, who's giving away a bag of $30 edibles when you can get 500 candy bars for that at Wal-mart? Just not reality here. There's also no report from the police department on this at all either. 

Just as there is zero evidence of sewing needles and razors in candy over the years, there's no evidence nor credible suspicion of this happening either. Mostly it's people who wish to overreact to anything based on "drugs are bad" mantras, and most are just looking for ways to bore down on Halloween itself as being a "bad influence". At least, that's the only thing that I can think of for trying to cause hysteria around non-issues like these. 

Face it, the drug war is over (the drugs won), your kids aren't being corrupted by video games, The Satanic Temple isn't evil, and your neighbors aren't trying to drug your children for laughs or kidnap them. The most dangerous thing you can find in your kid's candy bags is religious propaganda. Seriously, those things are creepy. 

It's sad I even have to say this stuff, sheesh!

Until next time,

Sweet Screams and Pleasant Nightmares!
