Colorado Universal THC Warning Symbols
Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division Rule on Warning Symbols for Packaging
Dear Marijuana Industry Stakeholders:
Effective immediately, the State Licensing Authority adopts a single Universal Symbol (“Single Universal Symbol”) for packaging, labeling, and on‐product marking of medical and retail marijuana, concentrate, and product (“Inventory”) pursuant to the Medical Marijuana Rules and Retail.
Marijuana Rules, 1 CCR 212‐1 and 1 CCR 212‐2.
From extensive stakeholder engagement through prior focus group and rulemaking meetings that facilitated a comprehensive review and discussion of our labeling framework, the State Licensing Authority committed to evaluating the application of one Universal Symbol to both medical and retail Inventory.
The State Licensing Authority’s adoption of a Single Universal Symbol is intended to further protect public health and safety by enhancing consumers’ ability to identify products containing marijuana. Further, by eliminating distinctions between Universal Symbols for medical and retail marijuana, the Single Universal Symbol works to simplify and improve compliance regarding packaging, labeling, and product marking requirements.
