Not just marijuana, but marijuana edibles purchased at a local dispensary and handed out as candy to children.

Two years ago we didn’t have this problem.

Cops considered it a non issue. Said the household was not up to date on Halloween safety issues.

Was having this conversation Halloween evening as some parents were also trick or treating/taking the candy I said I was “okay with it” the parents probably deserve it more than the children. Looks like somebody took things to a whole nother level:

 During the course of their investigation officers determined that the occupant appeared to not be aware of safe Halloween practices and may not have been aware of what had been handed out. Officers instructed the resident to not hand out any more candy and to turn out the lights in the front of the house to deter further trick-or-treaters.

Maybe you should have something special available for the parents?

The dispensaries in victoria are not allowed sell edibles, and they appear to be abiding by this.

Where was it confirmed that they were purchased from a local dispensary? VicPD certainly didn't make that claim.

I have friends who purchase edible candies from local dispensaries like nobody's business. In fact some of them only purchase edibles.

 

Where would those candies have been purchased if not locally?

There's a GEICO caveman joke in there somewhere.

We have been hosting an exchange student from France for the last 3 months, and while familiar with the concept of Halloween, she says it's simply not something they do in France.  She carved her first pumpkin, first trick or treating, etc.  

 

Weird!

Weird we don't we celebrate guy fawkes night/day we can have a another go of it in 3 days? :) Popular in the UK to this day.

 
 

Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night and Firework Night, is an annual commemoration observed on 5 November, primarily in Great Britain. Its history begins with the events of 5 November 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords. Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London, and months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure. .......

...... Observance of 5th November Act was repealed in 1859. Eventually the violence was dealt with, and by the 20th century Guy Fawkes Day had become an enjoyable social commemoration, although lacking much of its original focus. The present-day Guy Fawkes Night is usually celebrated at large organised events, centred on a bonfire and extravagant firework displays.

If you happen to be a fan of the Halloween film series, a NEW Halloween film is out next month just in time for Halloween. This time Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her original role and is sets out with one goal.......To KILL Michael Myers once and for all.  Trailer https://youtu.be/9y6tVJJkVvM  Bonus is that John Carpenter is back as an executive producer.
