Kush Bottles Launches New Line of Child-Resistant, Made in U.S.A. Containers
Date:7/15/2013

SANTA ANA, Calif., July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kush Bottles, the nation's largest wholesale distributor of pharmaceutical grade containers for the natural health and medical marijuana industry, announced today that they have launched an exclusive line of premium, made-in-America, child-resistant containers.

The new Kush Pop Bottles are the smart choice for an easy, convenient and secure way to store medication safely. The containers are child-resistant and airtight to guarantee that medications stay fresh and dry.

According to a recent article in the Denver Post, child ingestion of cannabis is on the rise. "A study published last month in JAMA Pediatrics by George Sam Wang and colleagues of the Rocky Mountain Poison & Drug Center observed a sharp increase in the number of children evaluated at the Children's Hospital Colorado following the widespread availability of medical marijuana in 2009," the Post stated. "Of those children, most younger than 6 years old, eight required admission to the hospital, including two to the pediatric critical care unit."

Unfortunately, most of the marijuana products available in states with legal medical marijuana are sold in simple wrappers or containers that fail to meet established standards of child-resistant packaging.

Kush Bottles now offer a safe, proven and approved method to meet the standards of child-resistant packaging. The new Kush child-resistant containers are constructed with medical grade plastic, and are BPA-free. These top of the line bottles utilize FDA approved material that is 100% recyclable and made in USA.

"The Poison Prevention Packaging Act, passed by Congress in 1970 and administered by the Consumer Products Safety Commission since 1973, requires child-resistant packaging for products that present a risk of 'serious injury or illness to children under five' who may drink, eat, or handle the contents. The act applies to numerous household chemicals, cosmetics and medications, including most prescription drugs, and all 'controlled drugs,' which, by legal definition, would include marijuana and THC-containing products," the article stated.

Child-resistant packaging remains the standard of care today for almost all oral medications and hazardous household products, and is a key preventive supplement to proper parental storage of drugs and other potentially dangerous items.

"Dispensaries should start using child-resistant containers right now to protect themselves from liability and protect children from accidental ingestion," according to Nicholas Kovacevich, Chief Operating Officer of Kush Bottles. "Businesses in our industry, which is still in its infancy, must take all necessary steps to demonstrate our commitment to running safe, legitimate operations," he added. "Using child-resistant containers instead of cheaper alternatives or plastic bags is an obvious first step to protecting the public and gaining respectability."
