No on Prop 205 highlights dangers of edible marijuana
PHOENIX (Oct 4) – In states where recreational marijuana has been legalized, accidental marijuana ingestion by kids has risen by 600 percent, according to a study of the National Poison Data system. Poison Control centers across the country reported more than 4,000 children exposed to marijuana in 2015. Watch more here.
Perhaps that’s because, in states like Colorado, almost half of the marijuana market is the sale of highly-concentrated edibles – packaged to look like your kids’ favorite after-school treat.
Of the many disturbing provisions buried in Proposition 205, one of the most troubling is not only that it would allow the production and sale of edible marijuana in Arizona, but also would allow such with no restriction on potency.
Edible marijuana in the form of candies, gummies, cookies, and sodas would be blatantly advertised and sold out of current medical marijuana dispensaries, as detailed in the proposition language.
This is what today’s marijuana looks like:
In Colorado, lawmakers recently banned the production of edible marijuana in the shape of animals or people, so as to diminish its marketability toward youth. Due to the Voter Protection Act paired with Prop 205’s sneaky language, Arizona wouldn’t be able to protect our kids by limiting edibles in any way.
