A NEW REGULATION HAS BEEN IMPLEMENTED

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

Marijuana edibles that look like children’s candy or snacks will not be sold in Colorado anymore. The measure that was implemented requires that adults know beforehand the effects they can be subject to when consuming these products. That is why the new regulations require that the wrappers used for these edibles indicate the potency of the product.

The main goal of the measure is to prevent that minors accidentally gain access to products that contain cannabis. That way, edibles in Colorado won’t be allowed to showcase shapes of animals, humans, fruits or cartoons. These products are only allowed to contain geometrical figures such as squares, circles, triangles or diamond shapes.

Colorado voters approved the sale of recreational marijuana in November 2012 and sales began in 2014. Almost immediately, edible cannabis such as candies cookies and cupcakes became very popular as an alternative to smoking the product. By April 2014, there were the first cases of minors accidentally consuming cannabis in the form of edibles.

The regulation

A report by the Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center (RMPDC) warned in 2014 that the consumption of cannabis by children could be lethal. These edibles feature up to 10 mg of THC, the active ingredient in cannabis. The Colorado Department of Public Health (CDPHE) suggested that marijuana be sold only as pills or as a liquid.

In 2016, a few measures were approved to regulate the sale of these products. The Colorado Department of Revenue (CDR) was in charge of implementing the regulations. “The regulations are designed to prevent children to be attracted by marijuana edibles, and these are very similar to those in place for tobacco and alcohol,” recently explained Michael Hartman, director of CDR.
