New Rules For Marijuana Packaging

universal-warning-label-300x277New rules aimed at making marijuana packaging safer for adults and less appealing to children are now in effect. All packaging for products that contain marijuana must display a new universal symbol that clearly states the product contains THC, the intoxicating compound in marijuana. There are different symbols for recreational and medical products but both convey that the item contains THC. To make marijuana packaging less appealing to children, the words candy or candies can no longer appear on packaging, unless it is part of the company’s name. Finally every container of retail or medical marijuana now must be labeled with pertinent information including a potency statement and whether the product has been tested for contaminants. According to Barbra Brohl executive director of the Colorado Department of Revenue these changes should make products containing marijuana easily identifiable and less attractive to children, while providing much needed information to the end user.
