Deputies in Pasco County say they have arrested a woman found with drugged gummies that bear a striking resemblance to Sour Patch Kids. 

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office says Kaitlynn Neal, 23, is charged with marijuana possession after a traffic stop in Port Richey early Wednesday morning led to the discovery of pot gummies in her vehicle.

In the arrest report, a deputy says he initiated a search of a vehicle seen leaving the Belmont Hotel after a K9 deputy picked up a scent from the car.  The deputy says he then discovered marijuana and multiple packages of a chewy candy that field-tested positive for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

The gummies are multi-colored and sugar-coated, appearing like many store brand candies such as gummy bears and Sour Patch Kids, among others. 

Neal told the deputy the marijuana and the gummies belonged to her, the arrest report said.  She was charged with marijuana possession in an amount over 20 grams and possession of marijuana in the form of cannabis oil, wax or resin.
