Drug busts in New Jersey are taking a new twist – kids’ cereals.

On Friday, police in Passaic County came foods during a drug raid on a house that is included Fruity Pebbles and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal laced with THC, according to

THC is the ingredient in marijuana that produces a high.

The police arrested eight people, ranging in age from 20 to 42.

It was the second arrest involving the THC-laced kids’ cereals in Passaic County recently.

During a traffic stop a few weeks ago, the police in the same province, found snacks and bags of grains mixed with marijuana or THC, reported. The grains of choice, there were Fruity Pebbles, Captain Crunch and Fruit Loops.

The police originally stopped the car, because neither the driver and his passenger were wearing seat belts.


The police said that they found what was used to make the THC-laced snacks, including brown sugar, chocolate syrup, a measuring cup and a mixing bowl.

“I commend my officers for their proactive police work,” said Haledon Police Chief Angelo Daniele.

THC-infused kids’ cereals have sprung up elsewhere in recent years.

Last year, two students at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut were charged with the sale of drugs that included THC-laced cereal, which she called “Marijuana Fruity Pebbles Squares,” according to the New York NBC News affiliate.

Also, last year, two Georgia women were arrested after officials found one of them with the sale of marijuana edibles at a local church event.

The foods included marijuana-infused “cereal treats, brownies, pudding.” the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team said in a statement.
