he Associated Press reveals anti-drug advocates are not amused over a marijuana-flavored candy being sold nationwide.
Lollipops with names like Purple Haze, Acapulco Gold, and Rasta are currently available in convenience stores and smoke shops nationwide. They're flavored with hemp oil from the marijuana plant.
Manufacturers claim all traces of THC, what gives marijuana its high, has been removed.
Marketers claim the candy is perfectly legal. But, government and law enforcement officials argue the pot candy sends the wrong message to kids.
A New York City councilwoman plans hearings on the issue this summer and the council in an Atlanta suburb has passed a resolution condemning the pot candy.
