The Lake Havasu City Police Department would like to make the community aware of a new drug that has arrived in Arizona. Methamphetamine, which comes in a pill form and resembles “sweet-tart” candy, has become the latest trend among drug traffickers.
These candy-like pills come in different shapes and sizes and have various imprints that make it harder to distinguish between candy and an illegal drug. This drug is known as “Candy” on the street. The United States Drug Enforcement Administration reports that counterfeit pills are easy to purchase and have become widely available through social media.
Parents are encouraged to educate their children on the dangers of drugs and the risks of taking any pill that is not properly dispensed by a licensed doctor or pharmacist.
If you would like more information about counterfeit pills or any other illegal drugs, please visit the DEA’s website at https://www.dea.gov.
