Description of Subjects/Issues MED Rules R 1004.5 and R 1006.5, Retail Marijuana Product packaging and labeling requirements for manufacturers and stores
Purpose/Objective of Rule The retail marijuana industry was subject to new packaging and labeling requirements on February 1, 2015. The previous permanent rules, which were adopted in September, 2014, contained potentially confusing language, which could have rendered enforcement and compliance unnecessarily difficult. In addition, certain language was inadvertently left out of the previous permanent rules, which could have adversely affected the State Licensing Authority’s ability to effectively regulate the retail marijuana industry. Consequently, these rules were revised in order to ensure the regulated community has clear guidance about the governing regulations. If these rules were not permanently adopted, there would be the potential for confusion in the industry and a lapse in regulatory oversight. Adoption of these rules will clarify the requirements related to packaging and labeling and ensure proper regulation of the retail marijuana industry.
