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. Findings from a recent survey of Colorado hospitals and poison control centers indicated sharp increase in the number of children under 10 who were exposed to marijuana, from nine cases in 2009 to 47 cases in 2015. Edibles were implicated in over half of the exposures, which included baked goods, candy, and popcorn products.
