Now, he's warning parents of the potential danger.
This is the first time Berry County Sheriff Mick Epperly has seen marijuana in candy form in the area.
The Jasper County Drug Task Force recently confiscated a package with bags of candy like lemon drops, gummy bears, and mints that contained medical marijuana.
They also recovered marijuana in other forms.
The package was intercepted in Joplin, Mo., and then handed over to the Southwest Missouri Drug Task Force.
The sheriff wants parents to be aware these products are out there.
