Every day you worry about your child's safety and every day it seem that more and more things are popping up for you to worry about.

Sometimes you just have to take a deep breath, teach them right from wrong and hope they make good choices. I know, easier typed than done.

As we approach Halloween, trick-or-treating and Halloween parties, your worry starts to get a little worse. Not hard to do with everything you read or see, but the worries are there for sure.

You've seen reports lately on what you need to do to keep your kids safe while trick or treating, that your not supposed to put candles in your carved pumpkins and now you need to worry about your kids getting drugs in their candy.

Just his week the Evansville Police Department posted a very helpful, yet nerve wracking, couple of posts on their Facebook page. The post points out how similar  packages with items other than candy, can look like some of your kids favorite candy.

In the post from EPD, the comments were making fun of the situation. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) just put out a press release warning of drugs like fentanyl being seized in 26 states.

Brightly colored pills that have been labeled 'rainbow fentanyl' are being brought into the country. DEA Administrator Anne Milgram said in the release that bringing the drug into the country in a variety of way is to

drive addiction amongst kids and young adults.

The men and women of the DEA are relentlessly working to stop the trafficking of rainbow fentanyl and defeat the Mexican drug cartels that are responsible for the vast majority of the fentanyl that is being trafficked in the United States

According to the release, if you encounter fentanyl or drug in any form in your kids candy, to not 'handle it' and call police immediately.

Spending a few extra minutes to educate your kids on what to look for, even if you're not overly worried, is still worth it.
