JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Police in Mississippi say they've confiscated several baggies filled with marijuana-infused snacks at a "dispensary party."
News outlets reports Jackson police arrested five people for possession of ecstasy and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
Spokesman Sam Brown told outlets Tuesday that authorities were tipped off about the party, which is typical in states where marijuana is legal. The edibles included rice crispy treats and brownies worth about $3,000. A gun, bong and other paraphernalia were also confiscated.
Brown says the dangers of edibles are unknown and any type of chemical could be involved.
Mississippi is among a shrinking number of states where marijuana is fully illegal. The University of Mississippi holds the only federal contract for producing marijuana and intends to grow 2,000 kilograms for research this year.
