Houston, June 15: In a quiet Houston, 600 pounds of meth infused lollipops were seized on Tuesday. The meth lollipops appeared to target teenagers as the candies were in Star Wars characters, butterflies and flowers shape. The lollipops found carried an estimated street value of $1 million. The estimated street prices for each lollipop ranged from $20 to $40.

Its reported that the house had dozens of plastic bags full of candy that had been stashed in buckets and pillowcases. Two people have been arrested as they tried to flee away. The suspects are Evonne Christine Mick and David Andrew Salinas. They currently face the charges of possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance.

Investigators have revealed that the drugs was supposed to be sold outside Harris County. Turning meth into candy makes the drug easier to transport and smuggle. Yoda-shaped lollipops are a lot more innocuous-looking than methamphetamine in crystal form. Meth is a versatile drug that can be swallowed, snorted, injected or smoked.
