I bet some of the anti-marijuana-activists will dose their own kids with weed edibles on Halloween just so they can say they were right. After all, It's the safest way to "poison" children, and get some attention.

My special Sweet Tarts are a Halloween tradition. No THC in them, just a drop of liquid magic, if you know what I mean. But don't worry, I don't waste them on children, just like I don't waste weed edibles on children either.
