Police say a pot advocacy company's RV carrying marijuana-laced candy burst into flames on a bridge that connects New Jersey and Delaware, causing lane closures and tying up traffic for hours, the AP reports. Weed World Candies tells NBC Philadelphia that more than $50,000 in merchandise was destroyed Sunday evening when one of its vehicles heading to Philadelphia from Washington, DC, caught fire on the Delaware Memorial Bridge. The company uses tour vehicles to sell marijuana-laced lollipops and promote the legalization and decriminalization of pot. Firefighters extinguished the blaze and no injuries were reported.
