The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is warning parents about marijuana products that are being packaged to look like regular chips and candy.

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- At first glance, they look like regular snacks - cookies, chips, candy.

On closer look they carry names like "Stoneos" "Reefer's" and "Starbuds."

Officials are warning parents to be on the lookout for products containing marijuana that are packaged to look like ordinary snack foods.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says they might be packaged to make it less obvious to parents that they contain the drug.

"Special attention to parents, Marijuana Dispensaries are packaging their edibles in creative ways to avoid detection. Be cognizant with what your children buy and ingest," the department tweeted.
