Colorado officials propose tightening rules for marijuana edibles

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/02/2014 - 08:42
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - A Colorado task force charged with tightening controls on marijuana edibles unveiled proposed rules on Friday to limit potency levels, require clearer labeling and assure that children cannot get their hands on pot-infused confections. Under the guidelines released by the Colorado Department of Revenue, serving sizes of edible pot products would be restricted to 10 mg of THC, the psychoactive component in marijuana, down from 100 mg. Packaging would also have to alert consumers the items contain cannabis. The proposals represent an effort by Colorado officials to rein in the sale of edibles, which are especially controversial for their potential to attract children and pot novices, with possibly dangerous consequences. Colorado lawmakers passed legislation in May charging the task force, comprising pot industry representatives, health professionals and law enforcement officials, with drafting new regulations after two deaths possibly linked to pot-infused foods made headlines.
