City politicians are smoking mad over a line of pot-flavored candies for local customers with the munchies.
Chronic Candy - hemp-based novelty lollipops and gumdrops that claim "every lick is like taking a hit" - is sparking controversy among critics who feel the sweets promote drug use among kids. "How could we go into market and create a product for children that encourages them to taste the taste of marijuana?" outraged Councilwoman Margarita Lopez (D-Manhattan) said on WPIX-Channel 11, "What is the message? 'Use drugs, that is okay?'"
I mean how good could these things taste?
