Authorities in central Ohio are investigating Halloween candy that may have been laced with marijuana.

10TV reports:

Authorities say the investigation comes after they received a report from a local resident that possible tainted candy from a "munch mix" was distributed during trick-or-treating Thursday night. Police say the candy in question has been submitted for laboratory examination and the results will be known later today. … It’s unclear if anyone was sickened by the potentially tainted candy or how it may have been tampered with.

Ahead of last Halloween, police in Colorado warned parents about marijuana-laced candy, which is sold at dispensaries, showing up in children’s trick-or-treat baskets on the holiday.

While pot is not legal in Ohio, the state is gearing up to vote on Issue 3, a marijuana legalization initiative that will be on the ballot in November.

Also Thursday, a 14-year-old girl in central Ohio bit into a Snickers bar she received while trick-or-treating to discover a razor blade inside of it. She was not injured.
