News 3 has obtained a copy of Nevada’s Statement of Emergency and draft regulations to allow certain medical marijuana establishments to begin selling recreationally to adults 21 and older beginning on July 1.
The regulations detail limitations on the amount of THC that is allowed in edible products and sets requirements for child-proof packaging and labeling. The regulations also prohibit certain products that are “normally consumed by or found appealing to children, such as lollipops and gummy bears.”
“These emergency regulations are necessary to protect the public health and safety of our residents, children, and visitors as we transition into an adult-use marijuana market,” said the statement of emergency drafted by the Nevada Department of Taxation. “It is necessary to implement them on an emergency basis as the department will issue marijuana establishment licenses for those establishments to begin selling marijuana to adults as of July 1, 2017.”
The regulations are expected to be formally approved at the Tax Commission’s meeting on Monday, June 26.
