WARNING FROM NORTH YORKSHIRE POLICE

This morning we have received    the following warning from North Yorkshire Police:

 

Good Morning

 

We have had confirmed cases of THC infused “Nerds Rope” in North Yorkshire.

 

These sweets are infused with cannabis oil, the packaging presents to a professional standard which is heat sealed and has the appearance of harmless confectionary.

 

These Nerds contain THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol - the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis) involved in the central nervous and cardiovascular systems. In adults the effects are generally mild and short-lived but ingestion rather than inhalation is associated with longer lasting effects.

As children often have a smaller body mass than adults the effects may be more profound:

• Loss of coordination

• Hallucinations

• Nausea/vomiting

• Lethargy, collapse or loss of consciousness

• Cardiovascular.
