Police warn of teens eating vodka gummy bears


Hollister police have posted a warning on their Facebook page about kids getting drunk by soaking gummy bears in vodka. The practice has gained popularity thanks in large part to tutorials found on YouTube.

The booze-bears are pretty much odorless and take a day or two to make. The real danger is that many teens don't realize how much alcohol they're actually ingesting, getting drunk dangerously fast when they eat them like, candy.

This has turned into a nationwide problem.
