Colorado May Be Tightening Rules for Edibles
Health professionals, public health officials, critics of legalization, as well as parents have been concerned about the manufacture and sale of edibles in Colorado. In addition to emergency room cases involving children who have accidentally ingested unmarked pot-infused treats, some adults have suffered negative symptoms and side effects because of over-consumption. Now Colorado is looking to tighten laws related to serving sizes, portions, and packaging under new rules adopted by state officials.
According to the Denver Post, the new guidelines were drafted in response to growing concerns that young or inexperienced consumers could suffer harm. Legislators also hope to minimize the number of consumers taking maximum levels of THC in a single edible.

Rising Trend: Marijuana Growing and Business Schools
With the growing financial potential of the marijuana industry, educators and leaders are seeking new opportunities to profit, bolster growth, and ensure top-quality candidates. In California and cropping up nationwide, are educational programs that teach people how to conduct business in a burgeoning marijuana economy. Many of these schools are for-profit, offering classes for several hundred dollars a course to help individuals at every level of the industry, from farming, to sales and venture capitalist endeavors.

Tax Strapped California Weighs Benefits of Marijuana Revenue
One of the primary reasons advocates in cities and states urge for marijuana sales is so that they can tax the revenue. Colorado has seen an enviable spike in revenue that has raised legislator eyebrows nationwide. These tax revenues on legalized marijuana have gone to pay for schools, education, and law enforcement. Now the City of San Bernardino, California is looking to raise revenue through legalization of medical marijuana and a tax on the pot. The plan was drawn up, in part, as a response to a lack of resources necessary to deal with illegal medical marijuana distribution throughout the city.
City officials have looked at the plan as a "two-birds, one-stone" solution to the pot problem, allowing them to reduce resources in the enforcement of distribution regulations, while also increasing city revenue. Our Orange County medical marijuana attorneys are dedicated to providing strategic advocacy and support to clients throughout Southern California. Whether you are facing criminal marijuana charges or want to learn more about compliance for your distribution business, we can protect your rights.
