Everything from coffee to candy bars will be wrapped in new packaging to indicate that the products contain cannabis, just like the product, Jungle Roast Coffee, in the photo below (see bottom of packaging).
The rule applies to the edibles themselves, not just the packaging, and was approved after complaints that the treats look too much their non-intoxicating counterparts. It’s the first such requirement in any legal cannabis capital
The stamping requirement comes in addition to labeling and packaging requirements that include childproof zippers and lids, along with warnings that the product should be kept away from children and not eaten before driving or while pregnant or nursing.
