(KCEN) -- A new warning for parents watch out for suspicious candy also known as "weed candy".
It's the latest way marijuana is being consumed illegally and it's turning up at some schools.
It may be the next generation in illegal pot consumption.
Detectives in Upper Merion, Montgomery County say this was turned in by a concerned parent who was suspicious about the crude looking candy found in a plastic bag.
Police say it's designed to have the same effect as smoking pot but avoids detection by not having to light up
"This is something that would easily fly under the radar. Most parents wouldn't think twice about this or think that it was drugs nor would teachers and law enforcement," Detective Rathfon says.
Investigators say it is parents who have to have the first line of defense against pot candy.
