Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Last month, after we shared Denver Police Department concerns about trick-or-treaters possibly receiving pot edibles while trick-or-treating this Halloween, literally hundreds of readers (including these) dismissed such fears as unreasonable and reactionary. But the DPD isn't backing down.

The department has now issued a video in which Urban Dispensary owner Patrick Johnson describes the visual similarities between typical goodies and the infused kind and suggests that any unwrapped candies handed out on Halloween be tossed as a precaution -- the same advice that's been given since he was a kid, he adds. See the video here.
