Cops' Warning: Ecstasy Pills Can Look Like Halloween Candy

The Jackson, Miss. Police Department issued a warning for pressed Ecstasy pills that could be mistaken for Halloween candy if they ended up in children's hands.

If your kids get these for Halloween candy, they ARE NOT CANDY!!!They are the new shapes of "Ecstasy" and can kill kids...

While stories of kids being given poisoned or tainted Halloween treats are mostly the stuff of urban legend, it's always a good idea to check your child's candy before letting them eat it.

And as the Jackson PD says, "When in doubt, throw it out!"
