Buzz Kill: Colorado Plans Stricter Regulations on Edible Pot

|


Alarmed by booming sales of highly potent edible marijuana products, Colorado regulators have drafted an emergency rule making it easier for new users to tell how much pot they're eating.

The result? Weaker pot brownies and cookies on store shelves, and new packaging requirements.

A draft of the emergency rules, obtained Thursday by The Associated Press before their public release, requires Colorado's makers of edible pot to physically demark their products so that consumers can "intuitively determine" how much constitutes a dose of marijuana's intoxicating ingredient, THC.
