The Winnipeg Police Service is advising parents to check their children’s Halloween candy after receiving reports of THC candy being found inside some candy bags.

Investigators said they have received at least a “half-dozen” reports of THC ‘Nerds’ candy being found in children’s Halloween bags in the South Tuxedo area.

The packages show the candy has 600 milligrams of THC.

“THC is responsible for the way your brain and body respond to cannabis which can include feeling high,” police said in a news release. “The potency of THC can vary in different products. The effect of THC on children can be harmful.”

Police noted the candies were found together with full-sized chocolate bars in zipped sandwich bags.

Parents and caregivers are being told to check their children’s candy for any of these products.

If anyone has information or wants to make a similar report, they are told to call police at 204-986-6129.
