Potency Of Colorado Pot Edibles Gets Regulated

COLORADO:  The haze surrounding marijuana edibles and their dosing eased a bit last week when state regulators adopted an emergency rule that aims to curb overdoses and offer certainty for inexperienced users.

The new rules limit the potency of servings in marijuana edibles as well as address packaging requirements.

The guidelines come as retail marijuana is expected to go on sale in Durango sometime this fall.

The Marijuana Enforcement Division’s primary concern is to ensure public safety. Regulation of the marijuana industry is a matter of utmost public concern,” said Natriece Bryant, spokeswoman for the Department of Revenue, which oversees marijuana enforcement. “The Marijuana Enforcement Division feels that clear serving-size requirements within the industry is a vital part of responsible regulation.”
