Candy isn’t dandy in California

There’s no mistaking edibles for candy in California where a new measure prohibits companies from making and selling marijuana edibles in the shape of a person, animal, insect or fruit.

The regulation is aimed at keeping children safe from accidental ingestion of marijuana laced goodies.

Edibles were implicated in over half of the exposures, which included baked goods, candy, and popcorn products.
