  • Petition Circulating To Move Halloween To A Saturday

Two parents were recovering at an OR hospital on Thursday after unknowingly eating Halloween candy laced with methamphetamine, authorities said.

Candy handed out on Halloween night by someone in the town of Aloha, Oregon, tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office. From kids worrying about their parents getting sick to an adorable little girl telling her mother, "I'm so disappointed at you".

Authorities say they're unsure how the needle ended up in the Kit Kat bar but are encouraging parents to check all candy. "The candy was seized and placed into evidence". In each case, the plastic tip on the end of the pin matched the color of the candy, the Omak Police Department said in a statement.

"Omak Police Department is taking the situation seriously and an investigation is underway", they said.

Just as Federer looked to be settling into form after almost 30 unforced errors in the opening set, more disruption ensued. The third set looked like going Federer's way, with the seed breaking in the second game, but losing serve in the seventh.

The parents were taken to the hospital as a precaution, but no kids ate the tainted candy.

"Leave it be. Don't throw it away". "We got over 1,000 videos".

Officials said this was the only instance of drug-laced candy that was reported.
