Smoke Up Kids!

Yay, Halloween is this weekend! Speaking of candy...last weekend, I had some time to go home and spend some time with my family and friends. One of my close friends was visiting home from Virginia, so we decided to go apple picking and then walk around a small, neighboring country town. Before leaving, we stopped in a candy shop (you know, the one that has all the old-time candy in giant barrels?). I figured I would grab some candy to bring back to school with me. Well, guess what I see right at a child’s eye-level immediately upon entering the store:

I pointed them out to my friend, horrified who tried to comfort me by saying children probably didn’t even notice. Funny, because almost immediately after she said this, three young boys walked up to the barrel and began to pretend like they were smoking......nice.
