Colorado MED Bulletins for Packaging and Labeling
The Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division has issued an updated bulletin to cannabis licensees who may be recommending cannabis to women who are pregnant. The first bulletin was issued on May 24, 2018. An updated bulletin was issued on June 4, 2018 reference language to be added to the warning label effective July 1, 2018.
Both of these bulletins essentially refer back to the original packaging and labeling bulletin issued on 02/16/2018.
Beginning July 1, 2018 – “There may be long term physical or mental health risks from use of marijuana including additional risks for women who are or may become pregnant or are breast feeding. Use of marijuana may impair your ability to drive a car or operate machinery.”
Warning labels are not only important for public safety, but protect the cannabis licensee from additional liabilities. If you’re concerned about additional protection, licensees may want to consider professional and product liability.
