    A Mason jar and packages filled with the synthetic drug bath salts was so difficult to distinguish from candy that Franklin County deputies had to take the drugs to a lab for testing, according to WBBH.

    Authorities warn that guardians should throw away any loose, non-pre-packaged candy that children receive.

    One arrest was made in connection with the jar and packages of drugs found.
