Winter Haven Police Warning Parents To Talk To Their Children About Eating Anything That They Are Not Certain Of Where It Came From 

Must Read

Winter Haven Police are warning parents to talk to their children about eating anything that they are not certain of where it came from.

In a recent search warrant, Winter Haven Investigators located chocolate bars that are reportedly laced with “shrooms” or Magic Mushrooms. Shrooms are cultivated mushrooms that contain a psychoactive and hallucinogenic compound called psilocybin. Although some people believe the natural drugs, such as mushrooms are medicinal, they can cause increased blood pressure, and heart rate, nausea, vomiting and hallucinations or delusions. (Please note that we do not have any reports of children ingesting this type of chocolate.) The bars obtained through this search warrant have been sent to the lab for testing.

“This type of substance is a Schedule 1 drug and is not legal in the State of Florida,” said Chief of Police David Brannan. “Parents are encouraged to speak with their children about consuming anything that could possibly contain a dangerous substance.”

Although, no reports have been made in Winter Haven, there are also colorful, candy-like pills and gummies that are laced with illegal substances such as Fentanyl now being produced. 

“Fentanyl is becoming so widespread and dealers are finding new ways to entice unsuspecting users,” Brannan said. “It’s only a matter of time that it could crop up in our area, so we are dedicated to target these dealers.”
