 The Clinton Police Department issued the following statement.

On July 20, 2021 at approximately 12:30 AM, Officers with the Clinton Police Department stopped a white 2017 Dodge Challenger on Interstate 20 @ Springridge Road for a traffic violation.

As a result of the traffic stop, Officers recovered approx. 36 pounds of marijuana candy edibles. 

CPD arrested Monet Shields, 31 Years of age (DOB 4-19-90) of Memphis, Tennessee.

This is an ongoing investigation that could lead to further arrests of participating criminals in the metro Jackson area.

The Clinton Police Department is warning residents of Marijuana edibles packaged to look like regular candy. The edibles were packaged to look almost identical to regular candies.

“We need to focus on educating parents, teachers, and children to the dangers of the potency of these products," stated Chief Ford Hayman. “Parents should be alert to the availability of these types of products and the potential that their children may be utilizing marijuana edibles.

That is way beyond messed up!
I can't even imagine the effect on minors who would get their hands on this dope candy.
The Feds needs to get involved at the highest level.
Why do you only see Clinton, Pearl & Rankin county ever bust these drug dealers? I have never heard of Jackson or Hinds county ever busting drug thugs.

“We need to focus on educating parents, teachers, and children to the dangers of the potency of these products,"

What dangers? Edibles are legal in several states.

Soak it in the sun and make a groovy lemon pie?

What a total waste of law enforcement resources.

Edibles such as these, along with ring pops (to appeal to the young kids) would have been available under the maryjoe industry's Initiative 65 that was supposedly for "medical" purposes.

Please someone that is butthurt about the Supreme Court's (proper) ruling on the constitutionality of the law - not ruling on the marijuana issue itself 0 just how these edibles serve a "medical" purpose.

What the Hello! In the third picture theirs a rainbow picture of Barack Obama. Now, how does he figure into this?

@3:04. Totally agree. Why not legalize cannabis and make some tax money? Then cops can have adequate funding to go after burglars, rapists, and child molesters.

cannabis edibles are about as much of a problem with minors as boones farm and four loco.
Or any other that other fruity alcohol sold in convenience and grocery stores.

The beauty of this Monet, like most works of art is, well...subjective.

If they need a volunteer to help get rid of that crap have them text me! That should be enough to last until Tate gets off his ass and let’s some sort of cannabis law pass.

@3:10 your a piece of work you know that! Why not take your worthless behind to we are the 74 on Facebook and you’ll see thousands of reasons these types of cannabis serve a medical purpose. You should count your blessings!

Pot legality or morality aside, I have no idea if the rest of the brands of "candy" are knock-offs of real brands, but the "Jolly Ranchers" and "Skittles" knock-offs might get the feds interested if Hershey's and Mars push it. Most companies of that size and exposure have well-connected folks, often retired feds, on their corporate security teams so it could get interesting if either or both of those companies take a position on it.

Question: Why can’t Monet sell marijuana yet the government which created the laws to allow Monet’s arrest) can sell marijuana, alcohol and tobacco?

Pure comedy.

You morons and/or trolls, these edibles disguised as candy are potentially lethal to youngsters!

There are states in these United States where it is legal for Ferrero (Mars no longer exists) to manufacture cannabis candy. And these candies are properly marked for sale. A clerk can tell the difference between cannabis candy just like they know kids can’t buy sour apple flavored hard seltzer.

Some of you people are real dinguses. You don’t think parents need to be educated so we can in turn educate children not to eat candy with specific markings on the bag? As if the only place a young child obtains candy is by purchasing it himself. Selfish adults are ruining this world. Think, for once, about the potential harm these products cause to developing minds and bodies and how easily they can be mistaken for something that isn’t an intoxicant. It’s about more than your and your idiotic desire to get high without reproach.

I have no idea of the laws in every state but I'll accept for the purposes of a discussion that there may be states in which state law would authorize such candy and packaging. But state law does not override federal law. I also no idea what Ferrero has to do with this. You might want to do a little research on Mars, not to mention federal law. While the feds may not bust folks in pot-legal states, it would be against federal law to make such candy, especially for interstate commerce, so I'll guess that large multinational companies (public or private) are not making or distributing it in the US.

I do not know the current position of every large company and fund but in the not-so-distant past at least, many or most were reluctant to even invest in the stock of cannabis companies because of the mere possibility of the feds getting involved and invoking federal drug-related laws, codes, etc.

@6:02 you win the broke the internet award for today!!

So, are you saying the edibles should at least contain some sort of warning sticker to prevent children from purchasing them?
If so, genius!

All I know is that the people of Mississippi voted for Medical Marijuana and the MS Supreme Conveniently sided with the liquor lobby and the mayor of Madison based instead of the Will of the People

Kingfish said...

Supreme Court made the right ruling. Blame the legislature and Jim Hood. Jim Hood for his crap opinion 13 years ago and the legislature sitting on its ass.

The Legislature knew this case was coming down the turnpike across the street but no, those capitol fatasses couldn't be bothered to do something constructive to head off the problem. The bill to fix the Section died on the calendar, thank you Mr. Chairman. Bills to approve medical marijuana went nowhere as well.

All the House cared about was screwing Bomgar and throwing a tantrum over tax cuts. The Senate has held hearings this year on the subject. Has the House?

All you dopeheads are welcome to move to Colorado. Please exit as soon as possible.

People, if you're going to smuggle drugs into the State of Mississippi by car:

1. Don't smuggle drugs into the State of Mississippi. Parchman is not a pleasant place. That's the best advice I can give you.

But if you gonna do it anyway:

1. Don't drive a Dodge Challenger or Charger or Mustang or Corvette. The preferred vehicle would be a Camry or an Accord or such.

2. Don't use a rental car. Use your own car with Mississippi plates. All lights, signals reflectors etc in good working order.

3. Don't be driving in at no 30 minutes after midnight. Daylight travel only. Drive the speed limit +/- 3mph.

4. Driver should be a middle-aged white man or woman.

5. Have enough luggage that would indicate a trip to Colorado [or wherever you smuggling from]. If the only clothing you carrying is what you got on, you've raised red flags.

6. Vacuum seal your stuff and don't let the product ever touch the outside of the vacuum sealed back. Then seal the vacuum sealed bag inside another vacuum sealed bag.

7. Have a credible story about where you're coming from and headed to. Don't tell the officer you was out in Colorado to visit the Grand Canyon with friends.

8. Be pleasant as pie with any law enforcement that happens to stop you, but don't ever, ever, ever consent to a search of your vehicle.

Legalize recreational Marijuana. You could eat a whole bag of those gummies and the worse thing that would happen would be that you realized that life is more than the clothes you wear, the money you make, and the social ladders you have been climbing. You will realize that you need to reconnect with family members and old friends, treat people with respect, and love others as you love yourself. Call me crazy, but I never met a marijuana user that was violent, aggressive or reckless, just from marijuana use. Now, I have met a few drunk people at bars that were violent, reckless, self-centered and not concerned about others.... but hey, alcohol is a big business.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
