Recent Marijuana Edible Scares Colorado Panel Into Tightening Up Rules of Industry

  1. Beenthere2Hippie
    DENVER - Marijuana regulators in Colorado have already tightened rules on popular forms of edible pot by requiring manufacturers to make it easier to tell how much of the drug consumers are eating.

    Now they're writing new rules on what the products themselves look like. A third and possibly final workgroup meeting Monday is hammering out rules on identifiable markers or colors for edible marijuana products so they won't be confused with regular foods.

    Lawmakers have ordered state pot regulators to require pot-infused food and drink to have a distinct look when it's out of its packaging. Regulators are looking for ways to make sure no one accidentally eats or drinks the drug.

    Denver Police released a video earlier this month warning parents about lookalike pot-infused candies at Halloween.

    A few thoughts / personal opinion.

    One of the few things i disagree with when it comes to legalization of pot. Sure its nice to have a selection of edibles, and various other things.. But Clear packages with gummy bears, chocolate chip cookies, and ThC infused candy... To me it seems like a good reason for people to stir the pot . ""Pun Intended"..

    These freedoms were a long time coming.. Why wreck it. Greedy companies will continue to push the envelope with new products.

    I do not mind edibles being sold.. But add a little common sense to the mixture..

    They need to have Black solid Color packaging and Maybe a Peel pack sticker so you can see see the contents/product inside. Not sure if it would be a good idea but it would tame the product representation down a little bit...

    Awhile back it was all about that Ear wax stuff.. Concentrated THC . With stuff like that people need to be informed that its not for your first time smoke.

    I did not even think about Tick or Treating.. I bet that some asshole someplace gives a child a THC infused candy eventually..
    I have heard of it happening at a school to a unsuspecting kid.

    Maybe the Product itself could be Colored a Certain way.. Or at the very least have Pill marks on them that indicate that there is THC in the product.
