Halloween is not celebrated in every country on earth, but it is still one of the most popular holidays of the year in many countries. It is also one of the oldest festivals.
The international holiday as we know it was born from an earlier version of the popular day that goes back to an ancient Celtic holiday that began about 2,000 years ago.
The Celts began the tradition in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and the north France and served as part of a New Year’s ritual.
It goes on to this day, and the holidays have turned into people giving sweets to children (and some parents) dressed in various costumes.
Just as Halloween is popular with those who want to decorate and feed people’s treats, it has also become a popular target for cannabis opponents to spread propaganda.
Cannabis in Halloween Sweets?
It seems that every year, as Halloween approaches, opponents of cannabis begin to increase their “warnings” about cannabis-infused sweets given to children.
Unfounded “warnings” from cannabis opponents are perpetuated by the mainstream media, which publishes articles about the “dangers” of cannabis-infused Halloween candy.
It is a very common phenomenon in the United States and seems to have spread to Ireland, where the The Department of Education issued its own warning about cannabis Halloween candy.
“The prevalence of these edible products they contain THC in communities and schools across the country is a growing concern and parents and guardians should be very vigilant during holidays like Halloween, where parties will be held, and the risk of accidental consumption of these products is considerable. larger “. the indicated warning.
Schools in Ireland helped spread unfounded propaganda, as well as the region’s media.
Lack of evidence
Since the publication of this article, there has been no credible evidence of the widespread spread of cannabis-infused candies in tricks or tracts. Not in Ireland or anywhere else.
This, of course, comes as no surprise to cannabis users, as they know first-hand about cannabis infusion. edible they are not cheap.
To put it simply, no responsible cannabis consumer will waste large sums of money trying to get children stoned as part of some disgusting joke.
To be clear, keeping cannabis away from children is a very serious issue that needs to be addressed properly, however, spreading the false reefer madness does not help anyone except the cannabis prohibitionists who cling to the ban.
