Fentanyl- laced hard candy

ATHENS, GA (FOX Carolina) - Police are stressing the danger of laced candy after Fentanyl-laced hard candy was found by the Athens-Clarke County Police Department. 

According to the department, Jolly Rancher candy was melted, infused with Fentanyl and reformed into gummy bear shapes. 

Police mentioned that these Fentanyl-laced products are dangerous to all ages because even a small amount of Fentanyl can kill you.

It's also dangerous because of how easy it is to mistake the drug for a candy that is common, according to police.
