Police raise concern over edible marijuana candy

Police raise concern over edible marijuana candy
A drug bust this week has a Westchester police chief raising concern about edible marijuana products being marketed to children.

Among the evidence seized during the arrest of Charles Riley, 20, was several packets of gummy candies which contain THC.

Chief John Barbelet says the issue isn’t whether recreational use of marijuana should be legalized in New York as it is in several states and most recently, in Canada.

He objects to edible products marketed to children.
