It’s almost Halloween, which means it’s time for the annual freak out, in which local news stations urge parents to watch out for people giving out marijuana edibles to children in place of Halloween candy. I say this every year, and this year is no exception: no one is doing this. Take it from me, a person who consumes a lot of edibles, no one wants to give your snot nosed kids their edibles. Sorry if this offends, but I get tired of seeing it every year. So, let’s look at why no one is giving your kids their edibles this Halloween.
They Cost Money!
That should be all the explanation you need right there. I spend 15-20 dollars on edibles each time I go to the dispensary, and I can tell you that I am not very generous when it comes to sharing them. If I’m not going to give them to my friends, what makes you think I’m going to give them to random children. Not only do edibles cost a lot, the package contains 7 edibles at the most.
Lastly, I’m pretty sure a parent is going to notice if someone were to throw weed gummies into their kids’ Halloween candy thanks to the giant warning labels all over the packages. To do so would be the equivalent of throwing 20 bucks away. I’m keeping my Cheeba Chews to myself, don’t worry.
People Don’t Just Give Away Drugs
When I was a kid I learned in DARE and various health classes that I needed to watch out for people who were handing out drugs on street corners and various other places. With the exception of raves, no stranger has ever just handed me drugs. I’ve had people hand me drugs for sure, but they were always friends, and it’s always been in the correct setting, not on a street corner, or in my Halloween candy bag. There are some things that people just don’t share and one of them is drugs.
This is a fairly obvious effort to smear cannabis edibles, as well as help the ongoing effort by various states to ban them. Don’t fall for it, because no one is giving edibles to your kids this Halloween.
Hope that clears everything up.
