There's no sweet talking out of this jam.

Police say a man tried to smuggle weed through security at Newark Liberty Airport in New Jersey on Friday by hiding his stash in Mary Jane candy wrappers.

As the following image shows, the “green leafy vegetation” was “artfully concealed" inside the suspect's checked luggage, police said, according to the New York Post.


Indeed, Mary Jane is slang for marijuana.

Authorities identified the suspect as Gregory Murphy, 49, of Toms River, New Jersey, according to the New York Daily News. He was arrested and issued summonses for possession of marijuana under 50 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Believe it or not, Mary Jane candy, a delectable blend of molasses and peanut butter, is named after the favorite aunt of the brothers who created it, according to NECCO.
