How in the hell can it take 3 months to determine that the bag contents were old cotton candy??

Cotton candy is spun sugar. That's it! Just sugar!! Often they won't even put food coloring in it to make it yellow or blue.

What kind of reputable lab takes 3 months to figure out that something is just sugar??

Numbskulls. The company that made the test is going to have to fork out somewhere in 6 figures for this. Not sure about the police department involved.
