In a warning on its Facebook page, the office wrote: “Which gummy bears in this picture are infused with marijuana? It’s impossible to tell from looking at them.

“The ones on the left are infused with marijuana and look exactly like real gummy bears. They are legal for sale next door in Colorado and have been making their way here to Utah.”
