It's No Trick - Kids Turning In Treats Can Earn Cash

A North Carolina orthodontist is offering to pay trick-or-treaters to fork over their candy.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that Dr. Jason Gladwell of Wake Forest will pay children $1 per pound of candy they bring into his office. Children can make the swap on Monday and Wednesday.

Gladwell says he hopes the candy buyback prevents tooth decay in at least a few youth. He says kids should enjoy the sweets of Halloween in moderation.

Gladwell plans to donate the candy to Treats for Troops, which sends packages to military overseas
