The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission could pass final rules for the sale of edibles in the state next week.
The commission’s policy committee unanimously approved regulations for edibles in Annapolis on Monday. A vote of the full commission is scheduled next week.
The sale of cannabis edibles in Maryland would be tightly regulated, drawing from pieces of law in some of the other 30 states that allow the sale of edible products.
In Maryland, the proposed regulations would require that edibles are sold in plain, opaque packages that are tamper-evident and child-resistant, without cartoons or graphics that appeal to children or resemble trademarks of commercially sold foods. Edibles can only be made into geometric shapes and cannot be made into a shape, design or flavor that is likely to appeal to minors, including animals, fruits or cartoons, according to the proposed regulations.
