We have now had something like half a dozen spammers trying to hawk "gummies", to us.

Are these something to do with enhancing your sex life, or a new kind of Post-It note, or a glue, or what?

Can somebody enlighten me?

Yes is is jelly sweet with cannabis in it.

Legal in places but not in most.

I would appreciate a little to add to my CBS oil which contains none and might give me interesting dreams in my sleep but am put off (a bit) by it's being illegal.

No they are just a candy that can be infused with cannabis. I think it is a bad idea since kids sometimes find them and eat them.

Is that the idea? Why market them as sweets with an apparent strong appeal to children?

Gummy Bears are a common chewy candy.

Something like jelly babies perhaps. Or maybe more like wine gums.

Yes. Wine gums, but even softer. Like, prelicked wine gums.

Wine gums are pretty hard. It's jelly babies that are soft. In the UK, at least.

You can bite the head off a jelly baby, but you can't bite a wine gum in half, or not in one go at any rate. So maybe jelly babies are closer to what these are.
