An innocent treat, or drug-laced contraband?

COXSACKIE, N.Y. -- A 48-year-old Massachusetts man and his daughter are being held in an upstate New York jail after state police say the pair was found with marijuana-laced hard candy after they were pulled over.

Officials say troopers stopped Gary Fox of Reading, Mass., on Monday in the southbound lanes of Interstate 87 in the town of Coxsackie (kuk-SAHK'-ee), 20 miles south of Albany.

Troopers say they found more than a pound of marijuana and about 40 pounds of hard candy laced with concentrated cannabis inside the vehicle. Police say the candy was packaged in bags separated by flavor, which included butter rum, cherry, coffee, orange, root beer and sour apple.

Both were charged with drug possession and are being held in the county jail. Information on their lawyers wasn't available.
