Hip-Hop N' Politics: Lollipops Shaped Like Marijuana Plant Being Sold [Video]
Marijuana Plant Lollipops
Just in time for Halloween, lollipops shaped like marijuana plants have hit the market.
While the "Pot Heads" lollipops won't get anyone high, the product has upset many anti-drug activists.
The Associated Press reports:
"We're already dealing with a high amount of drug abuse and drug activity and trying to raise children so they don't think using illegal substances is acceptable," said City Councilmember Darius Pridgen.
"So to have a licensed store sell candy to kids that depicts an illegal substance is just ignorant and irresponsible."
The "Pothead Ring Pots," ''Pothead Lollipops" and bagged candy are distributed to retail stores by the novelty supply company Kalan LP of the Philadelphia suburb of Lansdowne.
It also wholesales online for $1 for a lollipop and $1.50 for a package of three rings.
