"If your kids get these for Halloween candy, they ARE NOT CANDY!!! They are the new shapes of "Ecstasy" and can kill kids through overdoses!!!"
With the coming of October, there are some things that are just quintessential to Autumn: pumpkins, the changing leaves, and the on going fear of drugs in your child's trick or treat bucket. For decades now the fear has been there. As a child in the 80s the biggest fear was LSD, but today's drug of choice is methylenedioxy-methamphetamine, aka: Ecstasy.
Well rest assured, this isn't going to happen. Not only has there been no record of this happening, but at $10-$20 a pill the likelihood that some strung out raver is going to be dropping these into children's buckets is in fact, very, very slim. Snopes did a great write up about this as well.
But as a parent I will go through my children's Halloween buckets looking for anything out of place, though realistically I'm basically just looking for the candy I myself will end up raiding.
