Drug Ring Sold Pot-Laced Candy, Soda Pot Tarts, Toka-Cola, Munchy Ways seized in DEA raids

MARCH 17--A California drug operation manufactured marijuana-laced candy and soft drinks that were packaged to resemble popular products like Jolly Ranchers, Milky Way, and Pop Tarts. The pot ring, busted yesterday by Drug Enforcement Administration agents, was headquartered in Oakland and allegedly headed by Kenneth Affolter, 39, who was one of 12 alleged dealers nabbed. DEA raids at indoor pot-growing facilities turned up the marijuana-infused products, which carried labels such as Toka-Cola, Pot Tarts, Puff-A-Mint Pattie, Stoney Ranchers, Munchy Way, and Buddahfinger. A DEA spokesperson told TSG that the pot was baked into chocolate bars and hard candies and that the soda contained concentrated hash oil. A label on the ring's Nestle Crunch knockoff describes the item's ingredients as "milk chocolate with crisped rice dipped in hash oil rich chocolate." Some of the seized items can be seen in the evidence photos on the following pages. In a statement, DEA agent Javier Pena noted that Affolter's pot ring, which operated under the name Beyond Bomb, was "not only illegal, but potentially tragic," since "innocent children will somehow get their hands on these products and think they are just normal candy or soft drinks."

Hmmm.. Is that for real? 'Pot-infused?' How is it 'infused'? '...hash-oil rich chocolate’? '...soda contained concentrated hash oil’? Anyone ever experienced these before?

I think it is just clever marketing, and the stuff probably doesn't have any drug content at all... Have they actually tested these products and measured the THC content? Or did they conveniently jump on it and pump the media so they could tout how effective the war on drugs is at saving your kids from harm?

But hey that's me.... always the skeptic...

if, when you say "they" you mean the DEA ... I'd say a safe guess would be "yes"... now shuddup and pass da Joint Cola!

It's the perfect marketing; you get stoned, get the munchies, grab another "Twixed" to pacify your hunger, then get even more blitzed!
Its a never-ending cycle!
