York Regional Police have issued a warning for parents after it was reported a Markham convenience store was selling illegal cannabis edibles, disguised as regular candy, to underage teenagers.
Police said a search warrant was executed at Angus Glen Convenience on Kennedy Road, south of Major Mackenzie Drive East on Feb. 18. Police said officers found large amounts of cannabis edibles, cannabis vape pens and cannabis seeds.
“These products look similar to candy products that are made for and marketed to children. Many of the products were not adequately labelled and instructions regarding dosage were unclear,” police said in a news release on Tuesday.
