Halloween is all about tricks and treats.
And if you were an ’80’s or ’90’s kid and ventured out of the house on October 31st dressed as ALF in search of candy, it’s likely you came across the urban myth of razors in your apples or nails in your Fruit Roll-Ups. Maybe it was your parents or perhaps it was your school, but some authority figure probably told you the dangers of not checking your candy for small sharp objects, lest you ingest them and become “that kid.”
Well, the scare has taken a 21st century turn, with the latest candy scare being one big trip. That’s right, the fear of THC (the main psychoactive compound in marijuana)-laced candy is hot and fresh for 2019. Watch out parents, those Nerds Ropes are gonna make your kids climb to the HIGHest of heights.

We think this warning is a little extreme and it’s nothing new. Same day, different scare. That being said, you should check you kids’ candy and make sure it’s legit, unopened and sanitary. But no need for them to needlessly eat root beer Bottle Caps or banana Laffy Taffy. That’s just NASTY.
