New Nestle Chocolate Product 

Heard about this one from my Uncle who lives just outside of quiet Burlington, Wisconsin. Chocolate-covered marijuana among Racine County busts:

Shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday in what is known as Chocolate City, Burlington police pulled over a northbound car that was traveling the wrong way on N. Pine St. near E. Chestnut St.

After arresting the driver on suspicion of operating while under the influence, officers searched the car and found behind the driver's seat "two very large bags full of what appeared to be chocolate candy."

They broke open one of the chocolates and found "whitish-greenish pieces" inside it. Further searching turned up some 200 pieces of candy.

Tests confirmed that the chocolates contained marijuana. But the find was too big for the Police Department's scales, so the candy was taken to the Wal-Mart grocery counter, where it weighed in at nearly 81/2 pounds.

The owner of the car, Taylor K. Goettelman, 23, of Sturgeon Bay, was found carrying $4,268. He was charged with drug offenses that together carry a maximum prison term of 16 years.

So what would the tag line for that product be? Smokes in your mouth, not in your hand? Kinda strange to have something that is supposed to satisfy the munchies actually give you the munchies. Burlington is known as Chocolate City because they have a very large Nestle's factory in town. Apparently he got the chocolate from a friend of his at the factory (you have to support the local product you know). I wonder if there's more of a drug ring there than anyone realizes?
