High school student charged with selling marijuana-laced candy

WRENTHAM, MA (WHDH) - A student at King Philip Regional High School has been charged after allegedly selling candy made with marijuana, according to police.

The drug-laced treat had a colorful and chewy makeup, similar to the popular Starburst candy.

Police say that marijuana edibles often imitate candy that is sold in stores, which explains the legitimate packaging.

Wrentham Police charged both the seller and buyer of the marijuana-candy.

The incident is under investigation.
