Kush Bottles Working with State Legislators to Help Craft Child-Safe Marijuana Packaging Requirements
Date:9/23/2013

SANTA ANA, Calif., Sept. 23, 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 formed an Executive Committee to work with legislators, regulators and lawmakers in states where medical and recreational marijuana is legal.

The goal of the committee is to help lawmakers craft sensible and effective legislation regarding child-safe packaging of marijuana.

Current law in some states requires that Marijuana and marijuana-infused products must be sold in child-resistant packaging. However, most of these rules are only temporary placeholders for finalized regulations, and some states have yet to even address the issue.

Recently, the Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center (RMPDC) in conjunction with Children's Hospital Colorado, documented a substantial increase in pediatric cannabis intoxications evaluated in the emergency department. Many of these exposures involved cannabis edibles, such as baked goods and candies.

As a result of their report and subsequent support from multiple health organizations and other stakeholders (including Kush Bottles), a legal requirement for child-resistant packaging was included in legislation to implement in Amendment 64 (legalization of cannabis) in Colorado.

"This is good news for Colorado residents and good news for the legal marijuana industry," said Nicholas Kovacevich, COO of Kush Bottles. "As this industry moves from the backstreets to the boardrooms, we must continue to demonstrate our unwavering commitment to operating in a safe and sensible manner," he added. "And nothing is more paramount than protecting our children."

Unfortunately, some states have been silent on the issue regarding the type of marijuana packaging that dispensaries can utilize. Regulations related to the packaging of such products, or the products themselves, have yet to be outlined in rules that are typically developed by the State's Department of Health and Human Services.

New Hampshire Poison Control Educator Laurie Warnock said it's extremely important for patients, particularly those with children, to treat the marijuana like any other medication, keeping it stored out of reach of children and not ingesting it casually in front of their children. "These products don't look like medication, and they're not taken like medication," she said. "They can be easily confused by children."

"We stand by ready to work with any lawmaker to help them understand the industry from an insider's perspective," Kovacevich stated. "It is our responsibility as a leader in the packaging industry to help assure that comprehensive and effective child safety regulations are built into marijuana laws in every state in the nation."
