TTPD Issues Warning for Texarkana Parents


The Texarkana Texas Police Department is warning local parents to be aware of THC edibles that are being packaged in a way that makes them look like children’s candy after finding them in a traffic stop on Jarvis Parkway.

Media Release:

At first glance, these look like the candy you’d get from any convenience store. However, when you look a little closer, you notice that they contain THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that produces the feeling of being high. We arrested a man and seized a box of these THC edibles during a traffic stop on Jarvis Parkway this morning.
The packaging looks so close to that of some brands of popular candy. We’ll stop short of saying that they are intentionally marketing it to kids (you can make up your own mind on that), but we’re certainly concerned that some might mistake them for their favorite candy – especially if they’re not paying attention. As parents, you definitely want to be on the lookout and be able to recognize them if you see your kids with them.
