Washington cannabis regulator says candy can stay, but tone down the colors

December 16, 2018 |

State regulators have walked back a plan to crack down on certain cannabis-infused candies, instead issuing specific color and shape guidelines they say will prevent candies from being overly enticing to children.

The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) sent the legal-pot industry into a panic in early October, when the board announced it would review all edibles.

Although the state has long barred products that are too appealing to kids, the agency said it had received complaints about candies on store shelves that shouldn’t have been approved. In a presentation, the agency said “all production” of hard candies, tarts, fruit chews, colorful chocolates, jellies and “any gummy type products should cease.”
