Two children hospitalized after eating THC-infused candy accidentally distributed by local food bank

Last week, the Utah Food Bank handed out 63 bags of food to 63 families at a distribution point set up at the Roy Baptist Church. The bags contained Nerds Rope candy infused with a high dosage of THC, the Roy City Police Department said on Facebook.

Police said that they believe each bag of food contained three to four packages of candy, and that each family received one bag. Law enforcement and the Utah Food Bank are reaching out to families who may have received the candy. They do not yet know where it came from.

"We are absolutely horrified that this product went out to any of our partner agencies, and can easily see how volunteers would not have known what to look for," Ginette Bott, president and CEO of the Utah Food Bank, said in a statement to CNN affiliate KUTV.

According to photos shared by the Roy City Police Department, the packages of candy were labeled as "Medicated Nerds Rope" and contained 400 mg of THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana that gives people the feeling of being high.

Under Colorado law, a single, standardized serving of THC consists of 10 milligrams.

A total of five children have been affected by the incident so far, Bott told CNN.
This is not the first time this has happened. And while I think THC-infused food is perfectly fine, it seems absolutely brainless to me that the same companies that make extremely popular candy for kids, are making THC-infused versions of those same candies, packaged in wrappers that look for all intents and purposes completely identical to the "normal" colorful and cartoony candy packaging and branding except for a tiny warning box. It's stupid. It's the edibles-industry's Joe Camel moment. I really don't think major candy companies should be making THC versions of their candies honestly; but if it's something they're going to do, then they really need to be putting it in packaging that if anything over-emphasizes the THC aspect, and with a different brand name, rather than wrappers that seriously make it look like just another unremarkable variety of a popular candy.

A great new way to win votes: Call part of the electorate "looting hordes."
The district he's running for is north of the Atlanta metro, and predictably republican-leaning. Half the district is in the Chattahoochie National Forest, so sparsely populated.

(As someone who used to own timber land in another national forest, the US government doesn't own all the land within their boundaries, only what people were willing to sell. So it is a mix of government and private land. But the result is a not a lot of people live there, because you can't build up towns beyond those that already existed in the 1930's)

Robocop was released in 1987. The ARPANET/Internet was like a decade and a half old then. We already had social media.

The best part of Robocop were the matte black Ford Tauruses that stood in for futuristic police cars.
