Florida: Newly Enacted Rules Permit Sales of Cannabis-Infused Edibles

Tallahassee, FL: State regulators have enacted emergency rules that for the first time oversee the production and retail sale of cannabis-infused edible products to qualified patients.

The rules, enacted last Wednesday, take immediate effect. Infused products produced in accordance with the new rules cannot be designed or marketed in a manner that would be appealing to children and must not resemble any commercially available candy products. Companies that wish to produce cannabis edibles must obtain a Medical Marijuana Treatment Center Edibles Food Establishment Permit from state officials.

Nearly 400,000 Floridians are registered with the state to access medical cannabis under the law, which voters passed in 2016.
