I get regular emails about different drug/alcohol issues going on in our area. As the parent of a teenager (gosh, did I just say that?) and an employee of the school district, I am constantly hearing about kids making poor choices and parents who have no idea what to look for. I would much rather be aware than clueless and wanted to share this knowledge with all of you. Parents, here is your heads up:
Cheeba Chews are THC (marijuana) candy and look like taffy. These have been found in our area and if they are in our small communities in Iowa, they are in your community too. THIS is what scares me. My kids may not be interested in drugs but a “friend” offers them “candy”. It looks like candy…caramel and grape flavored…but is no where near candy. They eat it, like how it makes them feel, they want more….here comes the cycle. I’ll be showing this photo to our kids and that’s why I am putting it on here.
