It’s times like these that make me hate modern “culture.” I have fond memories of Halloween. Dressing up like a pirate or a super-hero or a princess (only if you were a girl) and going trick-or-treating, bobbing for apples at parties, and all that stuff.
Today, we’ve got this instead.
Parents dressing their daughters up as sluts, etc. and then there’s the candy.
That’s not candy.
The Jackson Police Department is urging parents to check Halloween candy before letting children eat it.
“When in doubt, throw it out,” JPD said on Facebook.
The post also included a picture of what police said is Ecstasy.
“If your kids get these for Halloween candy, they are not candy,” the post said. “They are the new shapes of ‘Ecstasy’ and can kill kids through overdoses.”
Officer Colendula Green said the post was a national warning and said there was no specific threat in Jackson.
And it’s a “national warning.”
I really do miss the “good old days” on days like this.
