Illinois parents are being warned about cannabis edibles that are candy look-alikes ahead of Halloween. Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul cautioned residents about the danger of certain cannabis edibles and hemp derivatives. Raoul says packaging can look similar to well-known snack food and candy wrappings. The American Association of Poison Control Centers says it has received over 26-hundred calls so far this year about children eating cannabis products.
