They could "potentially be dangerous" and medical help should be sought "straight away" if they have been consumed.

Symptoms caused by eating the sweets could include:

  • Loss of coordination
  • Hallucinations
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Lethargy, collapse or loss of consciousness
  • Cardiovascular effects such as a fast or irregular heart rate

Ch Insp Scott Cowie said: "We don't know what is in these sweets or how strong they are but they could potentially be dangerous if taken.

"They come in sealed packets and look very much like real sweets."

Tom Le Ruez, Tees Preventing Drug Related Deaths co-ordinator, said: "Edibles such as sweets infused with drugs can take longer for effects to appear than smoking drugs.

"People should be aware of the delayed onset of taking drugs orally and potential for unpredictable effects, especially when the contents and dosage are unknown."
