Every Halloween, government officials and police departments warn parents to inspect their children's candy before letting them eat it.

However, this year several state attorney generals are urging parents to look out for cannabis edibles that could be impersonating regular snacks.

According to the officials, there are a bunch of cannabis edibles that look like regular candy and junk food, including Oreos, Sour Patch Kids, and Cheetos.

"These look-alike cannabis products are unregulated, unsafe, and illegal," Attorney General Tong said. "Accidental cannabis overdoses by children are increasing nationwide, and these products will only make this worse."

So far this year, the American Association of Poison Control Centers has reported receiving 2,622 calls related to young children ingesting cannabis products.

"Parents need to be extra cautious, especially around Halloween, that these copycat products don’t wind up in treat bags."
