Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police


Cannabis candies look harmless – they may even look like the sweets you buy from your local shop. But did you know they are actually:
 
 
 
• Incredibly harmful. When these candies are eaten, they take a long time to take effect. This means that people can think they are having no effect so take more and more. The likelihood of an overdose is then higher.
 
 
 
• Illegal. Cannabis candy is a drug. It is illegal to make, possess and take. There is no way you can know, if you take one of these sweets where it was made and by who. You will have no idea what you are actually eating.
 
 
 
Don’t be a #gummydummy and risk your health for an illegal high

#ThursdayThought We know it’s not always easy, but try to be aware of anyone near you when you’re at an ATM. Being aware of your surroundings and not being distracted makes it harder for people to take advantage and less likely that they’ll try to.
