OK, so the Miami-Dade County Commission will not be thrilled with us about this one, but we're giving away a bag of sour apple-flavored Potheads candy. (Thanks, To the Moon Marketplace, the special candy boutique -- with 12,000 items from around the world -- that donated it.)
The treat, a gummy candy in shape of marijuana leaves, doesn't contain THC or any illegal substances; the top two ingredients are sugar and glucose. It's the packaging that the politicians have a problem with -- the bag shows a
droopy-lidded cartoon dude flashing a peace sign and smoking a joint. The bag is stamped "Legalize." Two weeks ago, the commissioners voted
unanimously to condemn the sale and manufacture of the candy and urge
retailers to remove it from their shelves and not sell it to children.
