NAPLES, Fla. — At first glance, it looks like regular candy, but a closer look shows the packaging says "Stoney Patch."

Collier County deputies say they confiscated 332 units of the edible marijuana candies, and now they want to make sure parents know what it looks like.

Deputies said the number of marijuana edibles they seized was worth about $33,600.

While medical marijuana is legal in the Sunshine State, it is against the law for edibles to be in packaging that resembles candy or could be attractive to children, deputies said.

Medical marijuana in Florida has to be sealed in plain, see-through wrapping and marked with the universal marijuana symbol.

Collier County deputies said even though the investigation into all the edibles was still active, they wanted to share photos of the packages on their Facebook, page so parents knew what it looked like.
