The Oregon Health Authority had threatened to be a buzzkill when it came to medical marijuana dispensaries selling candies, cakes and cookies and other munchies seasoned with pot.
But according to the Associated Press, the agency has backed off that proposal, instead focusing a ban on any products that might entice minors.
As the AP reports:
That means nothing brightly colored or formed in the shape of animals,
toys or candies.
The rules also require marijuana products to be sold in child-proof
containers free of cartoons or bright colors....Previous versions of the rules would have banned drug-laced sweets all
together because they could be attractive to young people. But
dispensary advocates said patients who take the drug orally need the
sweetened pot products.
