ATLANTA (WAOK)-It’s one of the most popular candies on the market and a favorite of young children and teens — gummi bears. Now a lot of teens are using them to get a buzz by soaking the candy in vodka.
Police departments are now warning parents of the danger.
It’s a big trend in California and so popular that one police department has posted a warning on its Facebook page.
Police say because teens are eating handfuls of candy, they don’t know how much alcohol they’re ingesting at a time. The teens get really drunk really fast without their parents finding a trace of illicit substances.
