Heroin disguised as SweetTarts (candy) found in Upstate NY; police issue warning

    Police in the Southern Tier have issued a public health warning about a new narcotics trend in the area that could pose a danger to children.

    Candy-like drug tablets have been found in the Elmira area. They contain a mix of Xanax, fentanyl and heroin, but are disguised to look like SweetTarts candy.

    The drugs even have a small letter "S" stamped on them that mimics the SweeTarts logo, Spectrum News reported.

    zero follow up information found three motnhs later.

    The whole heroin&benzos&fentanyl in sweet colourful pills thing to me poses two questions:
    why put (expensive) heroin inside when you already have a more potent substance in it and
    who buys colorful pills that are not "ecstasy"?
    In the 1980 there was a rumour going round about kids tattoo pics in chewing gums being Acid.

    If this were news instead of fiction they'd at least had a lab report.

    I think this is bogus of the worst kind.
