LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - Kauai police are warning parents about marijuana-laced Halloween candy.

Police say that when children go trick-or-treating Friday, parents should inspect all candy as a precaution. Chief Darryl Perry says while it’s unlikely children on Kauai will receive marijuana candy, the department felt it necessary to issue the warning because marijuana-coated candy is gaining popularity in states where marijuana is legal.

Local law enforcement agencies remind residents it’s illegal to consume non-medicinal marijuana in Hawaii.

As a safety precaution, police urge parents to dispose of any candy that’s not its original packaging.
