What You Need to Know About the Latest Gummy Craze

A new type of gummy has recently surfaced in some local stores called Toad Road gummies. These gummies have grown in popularity amongst teenagers due to a supposed psychedelic effect.

Parents and guardians need to be aware of the potential dangers associated with consuming these gummies. The active ingredient called psilocybin is considered a Schedule I drug by the Drug Enforcement Administration DEA and can cause hallucinations, nausea, and anxiety in individuals.

It is important to note that the packaging of these gummies does not list the presence of psilocybin, making them potentially more dangerous. There have been cases where individuals have been hospitalized after consuming these gummies due to the unknown strength and dosage of psilocybin.

It is crucial that we educate our youth about the risks associated with Toad Road gummies. Encouraging open communication and providing factual information is a good start. Additionally, we can emphasize the importance of making informed decisions and seeking help if needed.

Toad Road gummies are not worth the risk. As parents and guardians, we need to be vigilant in keeping our youth safe and informed.
