No reports of Halloween pot poisonings in Seattle or Denver

Seattle cops weren’t worried about evildoers tainting Halloween buckets with pot candy this year.

“No one’s going to eat a razor blade hidden in an apple. No one’s going to pass out THC-laden candy to kids,” Sergeant Sean Whitcomb said Thursday, a the day before the holiday.

Whitcomb’s prediction proved true.

“The Seattle police department received no indications of any attempted poisonings of children on Halloween,” said Seattle police Det. Drew Fowler.

Nor were there any poisonings in Denver, where police and national media fueled a touch of hysteria on the subject.

The Associated Press reports Denver Police and the Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center reported no cases of people slipping marijuana to unsuspecting trick-or-treaters. There weren’t any accidental poisonings, either.
