LOLLIPOPS have been stripped from the shelves of a Dennistoun shop amid fears they could contain cannabinoids.

The so-called Cannabis Lollies were discovered inside Discount Home Store on Alexandra Parade this weekend.

Concerned residents blasted the store for allegedly having the goods at the eye-level of children and for failing to display signs advising the products were not for sale to those under the age of 18.

The area’s councillor Elaine McDougall said it wasn’t appropriate to have the products on display so close snacks typically marketed towards children.

She told the Evening Times: “They were reportedly in full view of kids, where kids could easily reach, in amongst the chocolate and the crisps.

“The shop said they didn’t sell to under 18-year-olds but, there’s no signs to know this for sure.

“It looks as though it’s to attract young people and I don’t think that’s right. It’s not even a convenience store which sells these types of products – it's more of a hardware store, selling screws and stuff like that – there's no need for it.”

The lollies are made by Dutch firm Dr Greenlove Amsterdam, which states it’s a “producer and distributor of high-quality cannabis products”.

On the firm’s website, it states the sweets are made with “100 per cent cannabis oil”, while the box says the goods contain hemp.

However, it's not known if the products contain active THC - which is designed to get users high.

Trading Standards officers confirmed the items have been removed for testing and the owners had agreed to cease selling the goods until the results had been processed, which is expected to take a few weeks.

A Glasgow City Council spokeswoman said: “Our Trading Standards visited the shop during the weekend and took samples of the product away for testing.

“Should they test positive for cannabinoids then it becomes a matter for the police under the misuse of drugs act. The shop agreed to take the product off sale, for the time being.”

The shop could not be reached for comment while the manufacturers did not respond to request for comment as the Evening Times went to press.
