andychrist420: Emposter: Not seeing how this is silly (I know, welcome to fark).  Perfectly rational solution Complete over reaction to a perfectly reasonable manufactured problem.

FTFY

Also, I love when people go to the hospital after accidentally eating a pot brownie.  There is no such thing as a pot overdose.  Just wait a couple of hours, it will go away.  Just grab a snack, watch Blazing Saddles and go about your life


I think if you didn't know what was going on you'd probably think you were sick. People who aren't accustomed to eating pot might not recognize what was happening.

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.

ringo2: I'm firmly in the "perfectly reasonable requirement" camp.

Child-proof caps were invented for a reason.


yes, to keep adults frustrated.

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.

andychrist420: BarkingUnicorn: "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.

Every edible I've ever bought was clearly marked that it contained marijuana, not for resale etc. and come packaged individually.  If you can read, you won't be confused.


And if you're 2 years old you probably can't read.

I think the people who make marshmallow Peeps should package it!

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.

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.

fusillade762: DubtodaIll: 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.


With all their factories and whatnot going derilict seems like they would be all over it.

Well, at least it is a lot safer than any Rx medication.

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).

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.
