Authorities have seized 11 pounds of candy bars made with hashish that were intended for sale at a Michigan concert.

The Allegan County Sheriff's Department said Thursday in a release that the 48 hash bars and 42 hash balls were found earlier this week in a motor home during a traffic stop in Casco Township, about 50 miles southwest of Grand Rapids.

The drugs were sent to the state police crime lab for tests.

The driver and a passenger are from Denver and were being held in the Allegan County Jail. They told police they were headed north to Rothbury for the Electric Forest Festival. Each candy bar and candy ball was to be sold for $5 at the concert.

The Allegan County prosecutor's office was reviewing the charges.

    I have never heard of such candy. How come people don't make marijuanna candy ? They stop you down here in the south if you drive correctly. They say, Them ther folks adriven ain't made one wobble ther's something wrong with them, lets pull them over. You run out of the road, run up on the curb, they want even mess with you. You go to driving like you got some d*mn sense, they'll pull you over.

    original stop is pointless? They were found to have drugs - a crime-lol. Now I am totally against being stopped and checked for no reason - but if I have a tail light out or am speeding the officers are doing their job.Catch me with drugs - well now I look at that as taxpayers dollars being put to good use!

    So, after reading at least 15 news reports of this arrest, NOT ONE STORY tells the reason for the original traffic stop. Tell us the rest of the story . . . PLEASE!
