Colorado: Recreational Marijuana Edibles Will Face Tougher Rules
New guidelines for edible marijuana were written in response to concern about the over use of consumer with little experience. The new guidelines will terminate snack size products that have the maximum legal amount of THC (100 milligrams). Products that contain up to 100 milligrams of THC must be easily broken into pieces that have 10 milligrams or less. That is the standard edible serving size under Colorado state law.
Another guideline requires that the edibles be put into child-resistant packages before they are shipped to stores. Formerly, stores were responsible to provide that type of packaging before consumers left with their purchase. This change will also affect liquids. Serving sizes must also be clearly marked.
These new guidelines would go into effect on November 1, 2014. The Marijuana Enforcement Division believes "...that clear serving size requirements within the industry is a vital part of responsible regulation."
Rachel O'Bryan, a founding member of SMART Colorado, believes these guidelines are a step in the right direction, but thinks that whether or not they will be effective can only be determined by the future.
