They actually outlawed trick or treating in my town when I was around 6 or 7. This was back when the media was saying people were putting razor blades in apples (like kids eat apples before Hershey bars
) I remember my parents inspecting my candy before I could eat it (I still think they were picking the best things out for themselves!), and I vaguely remember something about people putting LSD in candy. This was the mid 70's.
They started it back up by neighborhoods when I was in junior high, but I thought I was too "grown up" for trick or treating.
Now, I would LOVE to go!!
