“Weed World vans around NYC are selling phony marijuana pops that don’t contain pot,” reads the New York Post headline, and below it, a banner screaming “EXCLUSIVE.” That paper’s intrepid reporter Susan Edelman has discovered the unthinkable, the candy peddled by the folks in NYC’s near-ubiquitous weed vans isn’t actually going to get you high. She even got an anonymous (lol) law enforcement force to verify, who said, “Maybe we can slap them with a charge of lying to the public.”

Three Weed World employees were recently arrested on misdemeanor charges nonetheless, however, for “selling goods without a vendor’s license.”

ANIMAL went rolling with the weed van–and confirmed that its lollipops are THC-free–nearly a year ago. See our video here:
