Section 5413. Exit Packaging of Proposed Bureau of Cannabis Control Final State Cannabis Regulations
COPY THE FOLLOWING INTO MESSAGE:
Dear Chief Ajax:
We believe preventing youth access to cannabis is one of the overriding accountabilities in crafting responsible regulations. This is why we support the inclusion of Section 5413, regarding exit packaging, in the proposed final state regulations authored by the Bureau of Cannabis Control.
Section 5413 reads: “Cannabis goods purchased by a customer shall not leave the licensed retailer’s premises unless the goods are placed in a resealable child-resistant opaque exit package.”
Mandating the use of resealable child-resistant exit bags will, we believe, accomplish three significant charges with respect to the final regulations. First, the mandate provides consumers with the proper tool to securely store their opened purchases. Second, requiring this of all exit packaging will create a universal experience in educating the general population on proper prevention of youth access. Third, mandating the use of resealable exit packaging makes it substantially less likely the bags will be discarded. This will serve two purposes: protecting not just our children but our environment as well while reducing the amount of packaging waste created by cannabis users.
Finally, we believe resealable exit bags will significantly reduce the cost burden to cannabis product manufacturers, at a time when many are just starting their small businesses.
For all of the reasons listed here, we fully support the language in Section 5413 regarding Exit Packaging as written. And we thank the state for its leadership in drafting reasonable regulations which will facilitate the legal cannabis industry while also protecting our children.
