Halloween Drug Safety

Protect Your Kids From Tricks That Look Like Treats

  1. DO NOT allow children to eat any candy before inspecting for signs of tampering.
  2. Medication can look like candy. Store all medicine away and out of reach of children. 
  3. Cannabis is sold as edibles like gummies, lollipops, brownies, and cookies. If you keep edibles in your home, ensure they are always clearly labeled and never within reach of children.
  4. DO NOT eat homemade treats unless they are from trusted friends and family members.
  5. DO NOT chew or break open glow sticks. 
  6. DO NOT buy fun packaged hand sanitizer. They can be mistaken for food and accidentally consumed.
