    Why in the world, would the government allow THC products at grocery stores in candy aisles? That's messed up! They should be sold at dispensary stores. Younger kids like 4 or 5 have no idea what the word "stoner" means and the older kids probably thought it was a new flavor. The parents could've thought it was sour patch. Read the label before consider buying for your kids or older kids need to ask their parents what those words mean. It's crazy because I sound like one of those people who have children to tell others to watch out but I'm still young and never had kids. I was taught by my mom to watch out for label and signs for dangerous stuff that factories put in foods. I used to be big on candy too. I started reading labels and found lots of loaded stuff I'm allergic to or can't have like BHT BHA BTHQ EDTA and bioengineered foods in M&Ms which was my favorite candy but found a lot of junk. So I decided to switch to popsicles instead of ice cream and eat more healthy fruits. I didn't like how my cravings make me cranky but I rather cut cold turkey on synthetic candies and stick to real stuff like organic. I hope these kids are fine and lesson learned for those parents who didn't read the labels carefully.

    It's Delta 8. Might as well be regular sour patch….

    Delta 8 ? I literally ate an entire bag of that stuff and it didn't do much of anything now i used one gummy from a dispensary and it definitely worked lasted several hours. Delta 8 is hemp. This is sensationalism.

    I thought edible packaging had to be plain and clearly marked, not like this California style lattracting kids legal cannibus packaging. Were these stores for Medical patients???

    Starting punishing parents. They're letting their kids run wild and not raising them. Maybe because they're teen parents. Thats what leads to stuff like this.

    When did parents become so irresponsible. Leaving their gummies around with kids. Pure stupidity.

    in 2021 i should have been hospitalized but i was scared of people finding out. i was trying not to die for a good 5 months and i ended up back on track after 9 months. i was only like 16 and turned 17 2 months after the incident. but i couldent enjoy anything because i was too scared of my heart exploding. even now im facing symptoms that i shouldent be, my memory is terrible, i cant remember 90% of what happened during those 9 month, my adhd symptoms came back and are worse than ever, i was fine off of my meds for a bit but i think that it all came crashing down. and i sometimes get really bad brainfog to where i cant drive safely. man i wish i had someone to tell me not to take that stoney patch kid. i never told any of my friends about it for a good 4 months, and my family still doesnt know.

    This packaging is used by ghetto low quality gummies

    You cant trust 3rd party sellers you dont know what you are getting

    The best stuff is properly labeled

    Irresponsible parents is what this sounds like. Kids have 0 access to THC unless a parent doesn't properly conceil where they put the stuff. Glad that's its impossible to OD or God forbid we would be banning medical marijuana again.

    They most definitely need to be sued for poor labeling/packaging.

    This is a load of rubbish. Edibles are way to expensive to just be laying around and “mistaken” for regular candy. Y’all are so smart.
