JACKSON, Miss. — The Jackson Police Department is sharing a strong warning ahead of Halloween.

If your kids get these for Halloween candy, they ARE NOT CANDY!!!
They are the new shapes of “Ecstasy” and can kill kids through overdoses!!!
So, check your kid’s candy and “When in doubt, Throw it out!!!”
Be safe and always keep the shiny side up!!!

The police department reminds everyone, “When in doubt, throw it out!”

Some commenters on the department’s Facebook page claimed this concern was unfounded.

According to Snopes.com, there is some truth to this warning, and some false information as well, including the claim that these are “new” forms of ecstasy intended to appeal to children. Snopes also doubts that the pills are likely to end up in trick-or-treat bags.
