Oregon drops proposed ban on pot-laced munchies
State officials are backing off their proposal to prohibit sales of pot-infused treats at Oregon medical marijuana stores.
In a new set of rules released Monday, the Oregon Health Authority seeks only to ban marijuana-laced products that are made or packaged in ways that might appeal to children. They prohibit drug-infused goods that are brightly colored or formed in the shape of animals, toys or candies.
They also require marijuana products to be sold in child-proof containers free of cartoons or bright colors.
The rules take effect Tuesday, but they could change based on public comments received during a six-month rule-making process.
