Is your cannabis stored in a childproof container?
As for edibles, they must abide by very similar rules. According to the cannabis laws in Las Vegas, Nevada Administrative Code 453A.500, “marijuana-infused products in solid or liquid form must be packaged in plastic which is 4 millimeters or more in thickness and must be heat-sealed without an easy-open tab, dimple, corner, or flap so that it is difficult for a child to open and as a tamper-proof measure.”
Stay savvy and keep cannabis away from kids
To keep the appeal of cannabis usage further away from children, no edible cannabis products may resemble any real or fictional characters, cartoons, caricatures or even animals. Furthermore, edible products can’t resemble or imitate any edible products that are commonly marketed towards children. Given that prevention of underage use of cannabis is a priority for the industry and regulators alike, these industry-wide laws are somewhat justified and certainly necessary.
