If you live in Arizona, you can’t avoid some sort of advertising trying to sway your vote for Prop 205. One of the consistent messages we’ve been bombarded with over the last months are ads saying pot candy has lured children to eat it and it’s all over high schools.
In fact, as of October 1, 2016, new regulations took effect in Colorado that changed the way edibles can be sold and marketed.
Among the new rules, edibles have to be labeled with a cautionary universal symbol that is a red diamond with an exclamation point and the letters “THC” inside of it. No edibles can have the word “candy” on it.
The Cannabist outlines all of the details of the The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Colorado Department of Revenue’s Marijuana Enforcement Division new State rules, that have been under development over the past year.
The rules and regulations are not being reflected in the “Vote No on Prop 205” advertisements. In fact, they are being completely disregarded and misrepresented.
