Candy Laced With Cannabis-Derived Oil Showing Up In Stores

DA: Convenience Stores, Liquor Outlets Found To Be Selling Products Laced With CBD Oil


Racine County’s district attorney has asked law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for stores selling products with cannabis-derived oil.

DA Tricia Hanson says she’s learned that convenience stores and liquor outlets are selling products that include Gummie Bears laced with the oil. Hanson said CBD oil has to be administered under the supervision of a doctor. Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill last year that makes it legal to use the oil to treat health issues.

Hanson told WISN-TV some of the CBD products confiscated in other counties have tested positive for THC, the mind-altering ingredient in marijuana. Hanson has sent some of the products seized in Racine County to the lab for testing.
