COLORADO: Stricter marijuana edible rules went into effect Sunday with new product guidelines for packaging, labeling and potency.
One of the shops that prepared for the new law is The Spot Marijuana Dispensary in Pueblo West.
Mark Scarr is legal counsel for the shop. He said it was a challenge getting in state regulated products.
“It’s a very difficult process. We had to read and understand the different regulations, along with looking up definitions of the all the different words so we know what (the state is) talking about,” he said.
The new guidelines make sure the edible products are child resistant. The new rules include all edibles must being sold in child resistant packaging and wrapped individually, or portioned into serving sizes of 10 milligrams or less of THC. New labels will warn users that marijuana is unlawful outside of Colorado and that it can take up to one to two hours to feel the full effects.
