ANDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – Lawrenceburg Police have charged a juvenile suspect after officers seized numerous illegal THC-laced vaping products and edibles, according to the Anderson News.
Many of the products have images of cartoon characters and are designed to appeal to children.
Detective Jeremy Cornish with the Lawrenceburg Police Department tells the newspaper the items are potent, with 85 percent pure THC, the psychoactive chemical found in marijuana.
“We want to warn parents to be on the lookout for this stuff,” Cornish says. “We want to get the message out that school-aged kids and young adults are being targeted through this advertising. We want parents to be aware that this is in the area.”
