    New Halloween Danger: Marijuana-Laced Treats

    Pot-popcorn. It's no joke. Candy, cookies and other snacks laced with marijuana are turning up in Southern California.

    L.A. County Sheriff's narcotic detectives say they have confiscated lots of it. The label on one packet of kettle corn read: "Extremely Potent, Especially Delicious."

    Some of the treats come with a sticker warning to keep them out of the hands of children. Others come with suspicious labels, or none at all.

    Narcotics investigators said the danger is that these treats contain varying concentrations of marijuana and are often produced in unsanitary conditions.

    They warn children can become very ill from eating these marijuana-laced products.
