Pot Suckers


All the great taste of cannabis. None of the great THC. That's what Chronic Candy and Pot Suckers promise from their hemp-flavored candy. And despite the fact the candies contain no mind-altering substances, the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions want the suckers off the shelves. The makers say they target the pops at young adults. But anti-drug activists say the candies will entice children to do drugs. After all, once someone has tasted hemp they'll surely crave more. In Michigan, Democratic state Rep. Dudley Spade has already introduced a bill to ban candies that contain hemp or that are hemp-flavored.
