Additional Information

Purpose/Objective of Rule There are several purposes necessitating the revisions and additions to 1 CCR 212-2 on an emergency basis. The primary purpose is to help the State Licensing Authority effectively regulate the retail marijuana industry. For instance, the new and revised restrictions and testing requirements related to edible retail marijuana products help ensure the public is adequately protected when they purchase retail marijuana products. As one example, the State Licensing Authority is clarifying what constitutes a serving size for uniformity among the industry and is requiring that certain tests be completed before products are sold to consumers, thereby more adequately protecting the general welfare of the public. The State Licensing Authority is adopting these rules on an emergency basis to assure the public is provided with notice of requirements related to edible retail marijuana products as soon as possible to ensure the safety of the public is protected. Adoption of these emergency rules will clarify standard serving sizes for edible products. The definitions for "Opaque" and "Resealable" were included in the revision to rule R 103 pursuant to House Bill 14-1122.
