DENVER (AP) Police in Colorado are warning parents of trick-or-treaters to beware of marijuana in Halloween candy.

Police say parents should watch out Thursday for this kind of candy that someone may try to pass off as normal after Colorado passed laws loosening the requirements for possession of the drug.

According to KUSA-TV, doctors say it is hard to get a toxic level of the drug in small children, but there are dangerous side effects that can cause panic attacks and other symptoms.
