Officers responded to the residences in response to community reports of suspected drug-related activities.

Sussex Police are concerned that the ‘very deadly’ edibles are packed in a manner that is ‘especially tempting to children and young people’ and have urged the public to be wary.

Inspector Aidan Cornwall said, “This was a substantial operation in which over 150 distinct items were confiscated after extensive searches at both residences.”

‘This operation also demonstrates our dedication to listening to community concerns and acting on the information we receive. Edible cannabis may be quite hazardous. First, they are often wrapped in brightly-colored and professional-appearing packaging, which not only makes them seem to be real food, but also makes them more enticing to children and young adults.

‘However, these commodities are often made in filthy settings and without quality control, so consumers who consume them have no clue of their potency or of any pollutants they may contain.

The intake of cannabis-infused edibles has been related to a lot of hospitalizations and even fatalities, therefore we are very glad to have seized such a huge amount.
