You can smoke it but not eat it? I’m against legalization of pot in the first place. But, isn’t it funny how easily government can contradict itself on the same subject?
HuffingtonPost reports health officials in Colorado are calling for what is nearly a full ban on retail marijuana edibles in the state, just 10 months after the first recreational sales of marijuana began.The Associated Press' Kristen Wyatt first reported Monday on the Colorado Department of Health and Environment's request for a ban on the majority of marijuana-infused food products in the state.The call for a ban from the state Health Department comes as multiple lawmakers, state marijuana industry representatives and state officials have made recommendations to be included in a Colorado House bill that seeks additional restrictions on the sale of edible marijuana products, all of which will be discussed in a working group Monday."Prohibit the production of retail edible marijuana products other than a simple lozenge/hard candy or tinctures that are plainly labeled using universal symbol(s) and that users can add to their products at home," Colorado Health Department officials wrote in their recommendation, obtained by The Huffington Post. "Hard candy/lozenges would be manufactured in single 10 mg doses/lozenges and tinctures would be produced and labeled with dosing instructions, such as two drops equals 10 mg."
Legalization of recreational marijuana should be repealed in all its forms. Bad idea—period!
