NEW YORK (CBS) A marijuana-flavored candy is sold in big-city drug stores and on the web but some say it is really aimed at children. Now lawmakers may 'just say no' to the controversial candy. 

They look like minty-tasting lollipops. But they’re not made to taste that way, according to the manufacturer. Every lick is like taking a hit. Although the nutrition facts show the candy is drug-free, still, the way its marketed and sold allegedly targeting young kids has outraged a group of lawmakers, parents and school officials who are demanding marijuana candy be banned.

I've had it before, it's not really that good.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/19/05 - 1:31:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why would you want to eat that? That can't possibly be tasty.

Although once I had a candy that tasted very much like patchouli, that was interesting.

17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/20/05 - 1:21:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, first of all, who likes that taste?
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 3/23/05 - 11:18:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's a drug,and they're getting little kids to eat it.So it's definately a yes.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 4:51:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sounds like something that shoudl be sold at an adult store...little kids should not know the taste of marijuana
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 8:39:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes it should be banned
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 9:33:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
ban it!!
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 9:36:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know why you would want to eat it
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 9:53:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
Who smokes pot for the taste? I thought the appeal was in something else.

I don't think it should be banned. They're drug-free. Poppy seeds are eaten, so why not marijuana-flavored candy?

17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 9:57:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think they should be banned, but they sound sort of gross.

I love weed and all..I just wouldn'twant to suck on it

17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 10:13:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
Just had a hemp-flavoured lollypop today.
Jummy!
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 10:24:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
Man, I can't wait till they come out with crack lollipops and PCP-flavored ring pops.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 3/26/05 - 8:32:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
I agree with what angelrific said
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 3/29/05 - 4:48:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Dude, i've only smoked it once, hated the taste. pot candy=gross. mind you, it could be like nicorette gum, you know, to get rid of withdrawl, just dont sell it in prison.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 3/30/05 - 4:42:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I jus think that sounds really gross
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 3/30/05 - 5:16:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
ive actually had those. they were quite good. but then again i like the flavor of dirt

They shouldnt be banned, but little kids definitly shouldnt be able to buy them.

17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 3/30/05 - 5:42:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm all for pot in some cases, but these should be banned for the sheer retardedness of it. Nobody smokes pot for the taste, and if someone said they did, I would laugh and point. Hard.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 3/30/05 - 5:58:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
angelrific and mybrowneyesx..it isnt a drug, learn to read and no they shouldnt be banned
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 3/30/05 - 6:31:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
No they shouldn't.
In fact, I'd like to hand those out to trick or treaters.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 3/30/05 - 6:33:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, they should put marijuana in it.....
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/6/05 - 5:44:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
Mitch says no
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/6/05 - 5:45:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
mmmm...dirt flavored jelly beans ^^^^^
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/6/05 - 5:46:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
You've actually EATEN patchouli, cricket?
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/14/05 - 10:34:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
Weed tastes bad. Make a candy out of it? Please.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/14/05 - 12:02:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hello?
Anyone still reading what the question actually says?
It's hemp-FLAVOURED candy.
I tried it and really didn't get a buzz at all.
It just had a good taste of the lamp-growed weed.
