Two Alabama men have been arrested for selling “weed candies” out of a van in the French Quarter. The pair did not have a permit to sell their product, which falsely advertised that it contained THC or marijuana, according to Louisiana State Police.

On Saturday, police stopped a “Weed World Candies” vehicle at the intersection of Bourbon Street and Bienville Street for selling merchandise in Orleans Parish without a permit.

Thomas Ashley, 64, of Bessemer, AL, and Thomas Jones, 37, of Center Point, AL, were issued summons.

Previously, Louisiana State Police tested candies and lollipops from several “weed” vehicles scattered throughout the French Quarter. Officers say none of the evidence tested contained THC.

The vehicles are not permitted to sell the candies without a permit.

State police say that a third man, 58-year-old Ronnie Hones, was also arrested during the incident on a municipal warrant from Orleans Parish
