Pot laced munchies legal

Oregon officials are backing off their proposal to prohibit sales of pot-infused treats at medical marijuana stores.

In a new set of rules released Monday, the Oregon Health Authority will only ban marijuana-laced products that are made or packaged in ways that might appeal to children.

That means nothing brightly colored or formed in the shape of animals, toys or candies.

The rules also require marijuana products to be sold in child-proof containers free of cartoons or bright colours.

The rules take effect Tuesday, but they could change based on public comments during a six-month rule-making process.

Previous versions of the rules would have banned drug-laced sweets all together because they could be attractive to young people.

But dispensary advocates said patients who take the drug orally need the sweetened pot products.
