Here's a question 

Why did gum and candy and stuff start being packaged like drugs?

It started with new types of gum like Dentyne Ice, and then a few other gum companies followed suit.

But now it's gone too far, contaminating the marketing of a favorite childhood hard candy: Jolly Ranchers. They used to come either in bags where they were individually wrapped, or in rectangular packs. Now this:

Are we that into pharmaceuticals? Is it just a way to give us less and charge us more? Or is there a great concern about Jolly Rancher tampering? What's next, M&M's in a childproof twist-off bottle?
