MANALAPAN - Candy laced with marijuana is appearing in the Garden State and it has already sent three people to the hospital.

New Jersey's Poison Control Center says a 12-year-old from Rumson was sickened after consuming the pot-laced candy that kids refer to as "jollies" because they resemble Jolly Ranchers.

Authorities say eating just one piece is the equivalent of smoking more than a dozen joints. 

Poison Control says people are also using THC-laced gummy bear candies to get high.
