No sign of them in Kansas according to state health officials, but the Department of Justice in Omaha is warning mid westerns in general about drug-laced Halloween candy that might be making the rounds.

The DOJ said some candy is  professionally packaged, and can easily be mistaken for regular candy or baked goods.  Last year the DEA noted that marijuana-laced candies sold in packages labeled;  Munchy Way, 3 Rastateers, Twixed, Keef Kat and Rasta Reese’s; had been collected during Halloween. This year’s offerings include “Keef Kat” and “Buddafinger” bars.

Other candy could be laced with methamphetamine, according to the DOJ:

Per the DOJ : SIGNS OF MARIJUANA-LACED AND METHAMPHETAMINE-LACED CANDY

Unusual wrapping, appearance, unusual colors, odd smell, misspelled candy labels, candy or food that is unwrapped or unmarked.

Officials said they had yet to see actual cases in the area, but are putting out a precautionary warning.
