The Denver Police Department has done a good job of scaring people into thinking there will be a rash of regular pot users willing to spend ten bucks on a candy bar so that they can secretly dose a little kid while trick-or-treating on Halloween; see a DPD video below.

Against the backdrop of a Colorado health department official formally recommending that almost all marijuana edibles be banned, the Children's Hospital of Colorado staged a weed-related Twitter chat this morning, with one of its focuses being how to talk pot with children under the age of ten. Among the pieces of advice the facility shared: If a child asks, "What is marijuana?," answer with something along the lines of ""It is a plant that people use to change how they feel. It can make people feel confused or fuzzy."

"We want the general public to be able to tell a marijuana cookie from a Chips Ahoy cookie just by looking at it."

That's the intent behind the edible work group currently hashing out recommendations for future edible packaging. And one recommendation submitted yesterday would solve that problem by eliminating pot cookies entirely from the landscape.

Cannabis Time Capsule, 1948: Comic Books Are "Dope" for the Human Mind

ctc-crypt1950-fairuseDCcomics.jpg
Dope! That's what comic books are! Dope! And those dirty books should be scrubbed, put through the wringer and have the dirt squeezed from them!
