TAMPA, Fla. — In this edition of Tully's How-To, police are warning there is a new and disturbing trend when it comes to the candy your kids could get ahold of from trick-or-treating.

USA Today reports Atlanta police recently seized cannabis pills shaped like Disney characters. These are not legal in Florida and officials are concerned they could get intercepted by kids on Halloween night.

You should always double check your child's candy, if it is not in a package or looks unfamiliar do not let them eat it.

Want to do some good with the legitimate extra treats your kids bring home?

ABC Action News reporter Heather Leigh told me about this last year, it is a website called Halloweencandybuyback.com.

Just type in your ZIP Code and find the drop off location nearest you. In exchange for your candy, you could get cash or other useful exchanges — like toothbrushes and toothpaste!
