San Francisco, Dea raids a candy factory where the candy, chocolate covered pretzels and such, are laced with Marijuana. This kind of crap makes me sick to my stomach. It is one thing to sell this junk to a consenting adult. But, when you lace something with the intent to appeal to children, I get very angry. I have not done a news article on Mylot for a very long time. This is because I try to avoid this mess as much as possible. When I logged on to my internet service and read the headline, I yelled, "What." It was not so much in disbelief, because I have heard of things like this before. It was more like, come on, not this crap again. There are many ice cream trucks in the city of Los Angeles that sell drugs. For most, out there, this is public knowledge. The ice cream is just a front, the real money is made from the drugs. There are no easy answers for this kind of problem. Anyone have any suggestions?

It's hard to believe that there are ppl that would knowing pass this junk onto innocent children. I think there should be harsher punishments for the ones that are doing it. The only way I can see to protect your children are to make their treats and snacks at home where you can be sure of what goes in them. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

You are right, that is a good idea. But, are parents willing to take the time to do this.

I know it's kind of a hassle. I remember when we were kids we could buy from ice cream trucks, snack at friends houses and it was no big deal. Now you have to be so careful. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

It is very sickening that grown people haver to do such stupid thin gs like that we try to protect our children and we have oidiots in the world who make what seems to be harmless into something deadly that we would not think about and it also gives the company a bad name do you want to buy what they make there after hearing that I wouldn't.Have a great day.

It is very sickening. Our kids are never safe anymore. It makes you wonder how much of this is already out in the stores and the kids will get a hold of.
