Mississippi police have arrested a woman after a traffic stop resulted in the discovery of 36 pounds of marijuana candy-edibles.
Monet Shields, 31, of Memphis, was arrested Tuesday morning shortly after midnight after she was stopped for a traffic violation in a white 2017 Dodge Challenger on I-20 at Springridge Road in Clinton.
The edibles were discovered during the traffic stop by the Clinton Police Department.
Police warned parents, teachers and children that the marijuana-laced products made to look like candy are being made available.
