A Calgary man is facing drug charges following a search of a truck on the Tsuu'tina Nation that uncovered cannabis candies that looked like Lego.

The candies contained tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive found in marijuana.

"The bright colouring, multiple flavours and toylike composition of the THC candies is a specific concern due to the attraction it may poses to children," the Tsuut'ina Police Service said in a press release.

"The Tsuut'ina Police Service would like to urge parents to exercise vigilance this Halloween season."

Officers pulled over a Chevy Silverado on Monday. A search of the vehicle uncovered significant amounts of marijuana and THC products, including 204 candies.

The band has issued a resolution prohibiting the accused from accessing the First Nation, which is southwest of Calgary.

Police urged parents to be careful at Halloween and to contact a local detachment about suspicious candy. (Tsuut'ina Police Service)
