MONTEREY PARK, Calif. -- L.A. County officials are warning parents to be on the look-out for Halloween treats laced with marijuana.

Officials say pot treats, such as candy bars and lollipops are sold in marijuana dispensaries and could be circulating around.

"These lollipops, candy bars, they look pretty legitimate. The problem is if it gets in the wrong hands and a kid licks a lollipop, they get ill or intoxicated," said Cpt. Ralph Ornelas of the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.
