GOLDEN, Colo. — Colorado authorities searching for a new look for edible pot are meeting for a final time Monday to try to find a way to make edibles look distinct from other foods even when out of the package.
The Health Department plans to suggest a new state commission to give “pre-market approval” before food or drinks containing pot can be sold.
The recommendation comes a month after the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment suggested banning the sale of most kinds of edible pot. That suggestion was later dropped.
Edible pot is a booming part of Colorado’s new recreational pot industry. But some fear the products look too similar to regular foods.
The Marijuana Enforcement Division is required to submit a recommendation to lawmakers, who make the final decision.
