POLICE have recovered a significant amount of cannabis in a raid in Sale - a lot of it in the form of sweets.

Working on information from the community, officers raided a property on Manor Road yesterday morning.

They posted the outcome of the raid on social media, adding a man is to be interviewed on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

The photo attached to the post showed cannabis in different forms, such as sweets with packaging similar to popular confectionery brands.

Names of the sweets, also referred to as edibles, include 'Cannaburst', 'Dank Gummies' and 'Trips Ahoy'.

A search on Google suggests some of these sweets contain as much as 500 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the chemicals which causes the 'high' associated with taking cannabis.

Children elsewhere in the UK have been hospitalised with symptoms like vomiting and losing consciousness after eating them in the past.

And according to FRANK, the UK's drug advice service, their effects are 'unpredictable'.

FRANK's website reads: "The amount of cannabis in these products can vary greatly and sometimes other harmful drugs are added too.

"The effects of consuming edibles are unpredictable and it can be very easy to accidentally take a larger dose than you wanted to."
