Just in time for Halloween comes the story of a new candy line that has stirring up controversy lately. The brand is called Pot Pops and before you Greenies get too excited these are just regular lollipops in the universal shape of a cannabis leaf. Don’t confuse this candy line with the classic Mary Janes of yesteryear, this is a new product which hasn’t been on the market for a full year but “it does pretty well” according to Andrew Kalan, President of Kaplan LP the company that distributes them. Kalan also went on to say:
We don’t advocate for a political position. We just look at what the marketplace wants and respond to it. It’s just candy…sour apple flavor, it doesn’t claim to be pot in disguise or anything like that.
Though there is no THC or any cannabis-based products, one parent in Buffalo, NY shared their concern saying that this candy promotes marijuana use and makes it acceptable. Even though I don’t believe that Kaplan LP is a company at the forefront of cannabis legalization its just like the owner said they are cashing in on a hot button issue in the nation right now so more power to them.
