article imageCanada's RCMP warn about acid Gummie Bears

By KJ Mullins     Sep 13, 2010 in Crime
Cranbrook - Drug trafficking has a new face--the innocent looking gummie bear. The Cranbrook RCMP found a bag of the candies this spring during a search warrant at a drug house and sent them to be tested. The tests revealed the candy was laced with LSD.
This spring RCMP from Cranbrook, B.C. located a bag of the candies while executing a search warrant under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Because of where the bag of candies were located, the officers sent a sample to the Drug Lab. The lab confirmed that the bear was laced with Lysergic Acid Diethylamide, commonly known as LSD.
LSD is a psychedelic drug that alters the thinking process. It is not addictive. While under the influence of the drug a person may become irrational and their behavior can be bizarre.
"Obviously, if a young child were to consume such a gummie bear, the effects could be very dangerous," stated Cpl. C.G. (Chris) Faulkner, East Kootenay Media Relations Officer-Cranbrook RCMP.
While the police are not wanting to start a panic they want parents to be aware of the gummie bears in the Cranbrook area.
