I don't think it is too much to ask for the FDA to step in and put a stop to this kind of merchandising.
I assume you've seen the old Laramie cigarette commercials where Fred Flintstone is hawking cigarettes to kids? If you haven't, it's a classic.

This story stinks more than my Sour Kush.
The kid brought a bug of sour patch candies, and shared it with 11 kids? Nobody does take 1 pass it around with candy like that.
Either the kid knew, and was dosing all his friends, or the group knew what they were getting into.

The parents of the ringleader should be punished for child endangerment, and the ringleader should be charged the same if they other kids claim to not have known what they were taking.

Thats actually not right, The Constitution does not permit govt to create or enforce ANY laws in regards to 'drugs'.

Definitely time to punish entire industries, sectors, and consumers because of the mistake of one company.

We can be back in the stone ages in no time, and we can fully ensure no further research gets done on how THC and CBD can improve our medical results and other industrial pursuits.
Republicans have an irrational fear and hatred of the cannabis plant and anyone who uses it. All their talk about "small government" and "personal responsibility" goes out the window whenever this plant is mentioned. When it comes to cannabis, Republicans insist Americans need the government to protect them from themselves.

In 15-20 years it will be legal in all 50 states. Republicans are going to have to accept it.

Sure it does. The same way it regulates pollution, commerce, and everything else.

Your own article doesn’t even say that. One guy said it - and he’s wrong.

Seriously, I think making such a product at all was a bad idea since it is or can be easily accessible to kids.

Again.
There is that hypocritical aspect to the GOP—
Big problem with being blind to personal/party problems when condemning the other side
