Colorado May Take Away Your Pot Candies

potgummiesIf you’re a fan of all things edible and live in Colorado you better start stocking up on those candies, brownies, tootsie rolls, whatever edible you fancy.  That’s because  the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is basically looking to ban all edibles in Colorado.

The agency cites data that indicates that potent edibles are increasingly getting into the hands of children.  Since legalization 9 children have been admitted to the emergency room after mistakenly eating pot edibles.

Honestly, it’s hard to argue with the argument.  Edibles are great, especially for medical users, but selling them as gummy bears or brownies makes it too easy for children to mistake them for sweets.  Maybe the best way to ingest edibles is by pill or something kids do not crave.
