At first I thought this headline was a typo.  I thought, “Wouldn’t cocaine that looked like candy be more scary?”

Then I read the whole thing.  Unreal.  This is as bad as that “soft drink” that was introduced (and withdrawn) recently called “Cocaine”.

What are these people thinking?  It’s bad enough we’re importing lead paint shaped like toys.  Shaping candy like drugs, or drugs like candy is just stupid.

 

A new mint candy is posing problems for police officers, who say it bears a striking resemblance to street cocaine.
