They got sick. Maybe that is ok with you. No big deal if they didn't die right?

It is in candy form, of course it will attract kids.

Despite lies to the contrary, childhood poisonings have doubled and even tripled after pot was made “legal.” Enough. Time to lock up these drug dealers and burn their poison fields back to the dirt. You can all take one last “toke” as you watch them burn.
Negative. We won't be turning back the clock.

Full legalization of cannabis nationally within 5 years.

Don't hold your breath. OP will probably pull that article where a baby died from marijuana but was proven to be not true. OP will also claim marijuana was the reason a guy ate somebody's face in Florida but it was actually bath salts. I have to hand it to the OP. He/she is very persistent in his/her misinformation campaign.

Even it is in candy form it isn't sold to anybody under 21. Just like alcohol somebody of age gave it to the kid(s) and should be held responsible.

It was never proven not true. After they posted the original article they got bombarded with threats and pressure so they amended it. They said, “we didn’t mean to say the baby died of a marijuana overdose. We meant that if a kid comes in for marijuana overdose you should check his cardiac inflammatory markers to make sure the kid’s heart won’t explode like this one’s.” But I’m sure the drug overdose a few hours before he suddenly died had nothing to do with his death

So where is your source that kids have been killed. Mind you thats multiple, at least two? You have yet to prove that one has been killed let alone multiple, but go ahead, we are all here waiting.

Just the point, it is sold as candy. Kids can't keep themselves away from Tide Pod laundry detergent. sellers know kids will want the candy. Same with vape flavors in bubblegum, etc. They got rid of Joe Camel because kids... what is wrong with just smoking your smelly weed, why make it attractive to kids.

The Tide Pod comparison isn't a good one. The media made it out that a lot of teenagers were doing it when in reality it was a tiny number that were on youtube.

Why is it a problem to make it into an edible form?

For the record I don't use weed, anymore. It has been over 25 years.

Any time something bad for kids is marketed or packaged in a way that attracts kids, there is controversy, so let's be consistent is all.

One time my neighbors kids got into some kind of coffee drops wrapped up like candy, that were full of caffeine. Not good.
