FORT MYERS, Fla., Dec. 13 (UPI) -- Parents and anti-drug advocates are expressing outrage over an unusual product for sale on Amazon -- toddler-size leggings bearing the image of marijuana leaves.

The pants, sold on Amazon by AOSHILONG-Baby, are billed on the website as bearing the image of "digital printed leaves," but astonished parents say the design is clearly meant to be cannabis leaves.

"Why would you have that? You're advertising that you're showing acceptability to them," Diane Ramseyer, executive director of Drug-Free Charlotte County, told WFTX-TV.

The leggings, which are marked down from $46.40 to $5.99-$7, come in sizes for girls as young as 3 years old.

"Well I just think that's very inappropriate for a 3-year-old, not something they should be advertising," one grandparent said.

Ramseyer said the leggings could easily fool someone who isn't familiar with marijuana leaves into thinking they are something more innocent.

"Think, 'oh, what a great thing to give a grandchild -- something that has something to do with being of the earth,' and the plants not realizing what it is," she said.
