Police in the South of the County say that they have been dealing with multiple incidents, relating to young people being intoxicated from cannabis infused sweets.
A spokesperson from Cumbria Police said: "Any of these sweets with a high THC content are both dangerous and illegal. THC is the main psychoactive compound found in cannabis.
"The wrappers essentially look like any sweet packet so parents please be aware.
"Officers have already made a number of large seizures one of which was bound for Windermere and the local male involved has been released under police investigation on suspicion of possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply."
