High Times shares the reaction from several Colorado-based edibles manufacturers to recent rule changes. The rules include more stringent packaging and limits on the amount of edibles that tourist scan buy (200mg of THC total).
Jaime Lewis, CEO of Mountain Medicine and chairperson of the Cannabis Business Alliance, says the new legislation is unnecessary and motivated by fear-mongering around the misuse of products.
Bob Eschino, president of Medically Correct, the parent company of Incredibles, is also frustrated by the lack of reliable data associated with pediatric accidental ingestion, writing that 33 cases is “a pretty good success rate compared to the number of products sold.”
With many millions of edibles being sold each year in the state, the number of calls to Rocky Mountain Poison Control concerning marijuana-infused foods is markedly less when compared to other products, such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and household cleaning products.
