Texas lawmaker says pot-flavored candy promotes drug use

KLTV 7 Tyler-Longview-Jacksonville, TX: Texas lawmaker says pot-flavored candy promotes drug use: "The sale of marijuana-flavored lollipops has a Texas lawmaker voicing concern that children will become comfortable with the drug culture.
State Representative Aaron Pena (PEHN'-yah) has proposed legislation to control the sale of confections that simulate the taste of marijuana. Those are sold under the such names as Chronic Candy and Pot Suckers.

The candy gets marijuana's grassy flavor from hemp oil -- which is an ingredient found in health food and used in beauty products and other household supplies. But the confections are legal because they don't include the chemical that creates a high."
