It’s that time of year again, and Halloween is right around the corner. The spooky season brings us plenty of wholesomely frightening fun, loads of sugary candies, scary costumes, and warnings about one of the most common cannabis myths. One of the most common cannabis myths is that people are going to be giving away cannabis-infused candies to kids.
Candy safety during Halloween is a legitimate concern for parents. The idea that people are purposely giving away their edibles to children, however, is not very practical. Compared to regular candy, the cost of edibles is much higher because of their medicinal value. This is one reason it’s unlikely that there will be cannabis edibles in your child’s trick-or-treat bucket.
At the same time, although extremely unlikely, it’s not impossible for this to happen. This is why we put together some tips for Halloween candy safety.
All of these are great ways we can keep our children safe during Halloween. Even though edibles are not likely to get handed to your kids while trick-or-treating, it’s always better to err on the side of caution just in case.
Another safety tip for adults with children is to store your cannabis safely out of reach. Cannabis products do come in child-resistant packaging, which is a great secondary deterrent. Keeping them out of reach is the first line of defense though, and these are just a couple of tips about cannabis and parenting.
