Meh... I can understand the concern. I've seen edibles that look like suckers, gum, cookies, candy bars and anything else a kid would love.

Put the edibles in boxes if you're not consuming right away.

Children are probably less likely to eat things that don't look like everyday items that they're told it's okay to consume. Crazy, I know.

"It would require dispensaries to package their products in white, opaque wrappers with black lettering."

What an undue burden.

Medicine should never be easily confused with food by anyone, of any age.  That's just common sense.

If it's prescription medicine, treat it like any other prescription medicine. Demanding otherwise only adds weight to the argument that the medicinal qualities are overstated (an argument I personally don't agree with FWIW).

The individually packaged brownies, lollipops and chocolate-dipped cookies for sale at the Green Halo dispensary in Tucson look like kid-friendly snacks.

Yeah, the problem really is the parents.  And the shiat ain't cheap.  Usually $5-20 per brownie, depending on strength.  How are you going to stuff a cookie in a pill bottle?

When is big tobacco going to get in to the marijuana game? I remember some years ago they already had plans and packaging ready in the event that marijuana was ever legalized i.e. the Marlboro Green.

They've had package designs ready for at least a decade. They're probably waiting until it becomes legal on the national level. The feds would probably not look kindly on truckloads of joints crossing state lines.

Why is it the responsibility of the people selling the product to protect the user's children? How about the pot heads put the magic brownies on the top shelf and not on the coffee table next to a big glass of milk.

Everyone I know needs to protect their moms from their edible stash. My husband's aunt got into her son's stuff and he had to call another friend to baby-sit her because she was having quite a time. She apparently ate 4x more than he would have.

Same thing happened to the mother of a friend.
 
2013-03-16 07:16:44 PM
It has to be sold in a dispensary, not in a candy store.
So then, the ill person buys it, and takes it home.  What is packaging going to do to keep a kid from it unless the parent keeps it out of the hands of children.  And if the parent is doing his/her job, then the product doesn't need the extra packaging.

extra packaging: Extra cost.  Extra landfill material.

I'm an Internet Physician:  I do not know the effects a weed on a child 2-10.  Given the strength of weed the disorientation could be hazardous or dangerous.  I think it's a small, if any, burden that appears to be motivated by a desire to potentially enhance the protection of children from a realistic threat.

My cleaning crew recently sent me an email, asking that I reply with a personal email address (i use my work one) as they had an urgent personal question for me.  I immediately thought they must have found the sex dungeon, and the midget with the bowling pin and wolverine.  So I called, and the husband answered, and said he was so embarrassed, but he had to ask... was there anything in those brownies on my counter?  Why yes, yes there was.  He then says "there better be something in them, or I'm gonna call a doctor, cause I'm farked up".  "I'm a christian, so I haven't smoked in 20 years but I think I'm stoned."  I silently ignored the hypocrisy of smoking weed is bad yet stealing my damn brownies is ok, but overall it was starting to get funny.  I asked where his wife was (they work together) and he said she was passed out on the couch, but since he was high he was going to get some chips and watch TV and just enjoy it.

That would be sold under the train name "Marinol," right?

If natural medicines are found to be beneficial, their pharmacological active compounds are isolated and produced in a controlled dose.

Such is the case with THC... In other words, Medical Marijuana is already legal in every state.

BTW, the Marinol warnings are hillarious:

"

Do not smoke marijuana while using MARINOL. This can cause an overdose.

Adverse effects you may experience include feeling high, dizziness, confusion, or sleepiness.

If a 2 year old has access to it, it means the parents are doing a shiat job.  A can of beer looks a lot like a can of soda too.  It's up to the parents to keep dangerous products away from kids.  Packaging won't do shiat.

To this day, I STILL hear tales of folks simply eating the dried plant/buds - from what friends have said, the stuff need to be heated to release the THC compound which results in the highly promoted effects. Same friends have said simply eating it does nothing but waste it and give stomach cramps for some (or so I hear).

Personally, I stick with legal, approved things like tobacco and alcohol - which obviously are okay (as opposed to the aforementioned demon weed - thus the illegality and tales of whoa...)

LSD brownies? Hmm. That would be a waste. LSD breaks up readily from heat, and the dose is so small there's no reason to hide it in brownies to cover up anything. If the person had a solution of it available they might as well put it in sugar cubes instead of brownie mix.

Right, not everybody has kids and wants packaging that is hard to get into. How about parents just keep shiat that their kids shouldn't have away from their kids? The whole world does not need to be childproofed.
