A warning for parents surrounding THC-laced gummy edibles.

They look just the ones you buy at the store, which is making it even harder for people to tell the difference between them. 

The edibles are legal in some states but not all.

THC laced candies could be two to one-hundred times more potent than traditional marijuana and can lead to extreme side effects.

"You can have anxiety. Auditory and visual hallucinations. So those are some things to look out for if you think your child has consumed some edible candy that is laced with THC,” said Dr. James Pinckney.

There are things you can do to minimize the risk of exposing your kids to edibles.

First, throw away any candy not wrapped by a known candy manufacturer.

If the wrapping is unfamiliar or you have any reservations about that candy, throw it away.

So far, there is no proof that these edibles have been deadly.
