Waterford, CT (WBZ NewsRadio) — A Halloween worry come true in Connecticut.
Police in the city of Waterford say they were called after parents discovered sealed packages of marijuana gummies inside their children's Halloween candy. Each bag had 10 gummies with packaging that indicated each piece contained 10 mg of THC -- that's the active ingredient in pot.
Just two children received one bag each.
Edible pot candies are not currently allowed to be sold by Connecticut Medical Marijuana dispensaries.
Police say it's not known if the candy was intentionally handed out or if it was an accidental oversight by the owner. They don't believe it's wide spread problem or a targeted incident.
Officers have completed a canvas of the neighborhood where the candy was collected and say the investigation is still on-going.
