MONESSEN, Pa. – A Monessen man accused of hiding marijuana-laced gummy bears in his 4-month-old’s bassinet was in court Wednesday.
Police said they found edible marijuana in Zachary Lawson’s home in March, some of which was in the form of gummy bears and cotton candy. The laced gummy bears were found inside and underneath the baby’s bassinet.
The discovery was made when police went to the home because it was believed Lawson was in violation of state parole conditions.
The marijuana-laced items were labeled as “Sweet Stone Candy,” police said.
Lawson’s case was continued Wednesday after confusion about his representation. His brother declined comment to Channel 11.
