Marijuana gummies, Edibles, Cannabis, Colorado


One afternoon last February, a group of policymakers hand-selected by Colorado’s governor sat in a public meeting room in Denver and took up the subject of marijuana gummy worms.

Should marijuana gummy worms, which look like the old-fashioned penny candy but come laced with cannabis, be outlawed? If not, how should they be differentiated from the kid-friendly, nonmarijuana kind? Should marijuana gummy worms come only in dull, unappealing colors, as someone suggested—should they, in other words, be more worm-like? And how should the potency of these worms be measured and labeled? What if some worms are more potent than others? What if the tail is more potent than the head?
