WATERFORD, Ct. – Police in Waterford said two children received sealed gummy candies containing marijuana on Halloween, according to a Facebook post from the department.

The police were notified about 9 p.m. Thursday that two children, under 18 years old, had each received small bags that “contained 10 gummies with a corresponding THC level of 10 mg per gummy. Only 2 packages were recovered.”

According to the post, parents inspecting the candy located the THC; nobody ingested it. No injuries related to the candies has been reported.
