Unlike in the ‘old days’, not many kids still go trick-or-treating, but for those who do the Jackson, MS Metro Police Department, along with others have put out this alert for Halloween.
If your kids get these for Halloween candy, they ARE NOT CANDY!!! They are the new shapes of “Ecstasy” and can kill kids through overdoses!!!
So, check your kid’s candy and “When in doubt, Throw it out!!!” Be safe and always keep the shiny side up!!!
It is unlikely that drug dealers or users would be giving away expensive drugs, but there are some twisted people out there, so better to be safe than sorry.
Our standing rule was ‘don’t eat anything until we check it’. It’s a shame that society has taken such evil turns that now Tylenol needs safety lids and kids can’t accept home-made popcorn balls or other treats, but that’s where we are.
Accidents can happen in a split second, so it’s also a good idea to use reflective tape in several key spots on the kids’ costumes. Be safe out there.
