Colorado Health Officials Want To Ban Most Types Of Pot-Infused Edibles


Recommended Posts

Colorado health officials want to ban many edible forms of marijuana, including brownies, cookies and most candies, limiting legal sales of pot-infused food to lozenges and some liquids.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment told marijuana regulators that many forms of edible marijuana “are naturally attractive to children” and violate the law’s “requirement to prevent the marketing of marijuana products to children.”

The recommendation was obtained by The Associated Press in advance of a third and possibly final workgroup meeting Monday to draw up rules for identifiable markers or colors for edible marijuana products so they won’t be confused with regular foods.

POLL: The Colorado Department of Public Health wants to ban most forms of edible marijuana for children's safety. Should state legislators enact such a ban, which would include brownies?

  •  Yes, there should be a ban. The industry should take the lead to ensure children's safety.
  •  Maybe we should consider a ban. If it would cut down on kids' accidental ingestion of pot, it's something to consider.
  •  No, there's no need for a ban. It's up to parents, not the legal pot industry, to monitor their kids' activities.

wasnt someone talking about going trick or treating with the kids, and the adults drink at each house? kind of like some pub crawl?


thats what the dispensaries should do on halloween. open it up to trick or treating adults to go get some free candies. maybe a special candy corn or two. coupons for every (adult) in costume!

Another solution in search of a problem.

Yeah so we MUST cancel trick or treating. Because parents aren't smart enough to throw away stuff that looks homemade.


This is a non-problem. My mudder always pitched the homemade stuff. Remember the days when they said check your kids candy for razor blades? That didn't shut down trick or treating but this should ay? It's easy, keep the crap that's wrapped in the m&m wrappers and stop beachin bout it.
