Some things in this world just seem too insane to be true, earning them the title "urban legend." In the '80s, parents feared trick-or-treaters would come home with needles in candy bars and wrappers laced with drugs. Alas, nobody I ever knew stumbled upon such horrific findings.

Parents in Ramsey, MN, found one "treat" that turned out to be a potentially lethal trick. Their 7-year-old son was given $85 cash and $200 worth of methamphetamine! Thankfully the tot didn't think it was rock candy and consume it, and told his parents about it instead. His folks suspect an older teenager dropped it in his bucket after asking the youngster if he wanted some candy.

Lesson learned — I'm going home to thoroughly search the rest of our candy stash before my daughter gets her wee hands on any more chocolate.
