“You have little kids that accidentally get into this stuff; or a baby sitter might give a child something out of the pantry, not realizing what it is. Those accidental issues are on the rise, and it’s a big problem.”
The issue of how to keep children from accidentally consuming edible marijuana continues to hold back legalization efforts. It’s imperative that edible companies begin clearly marking their edibles. In order to move forward with legalization parents and legislators will have to see that edible manufacturers are taking proactive steps to ensure the safety of children above profits.
The facts are clear. Legalization of marijuana, for medical or recreational use, is harmful to the public and is dangerous for children.
