What does the law say about this? 

The United States of America has a very strict law. If anybody is found guilty of consuming drugs such as Cannabis, then there is a very limited possibility that he would be released from the repercussions. In all cases, he can be jailed for up to 20 years. A fine of 40000 dollars can also be imposed on that person. In light of the recent incident that has taken place, it is very convenient for the consumption of Cannabis to increase as anyone can mistake candies and eat them without realizing in the first instance that it is Cannabis. 

That is why different government organizations are coming forward to spread awareness. Children have to be protected because they usually get attracted to colorful candies. The government has also increased scrutiny over every healthy product, such as cakes and other bakery items. Different helpline numbers and portals have been developed to help people instantly. Unconscious consumption of Cannabis can affect the human body to a great extent. The labeling of the products has to be scrutinized properly to ensure that no amount of hemp or Cannabis is present.
