Missouri Senate Approves Bill to Ban Cannabis-Infused Candy


The Missouri Senate approved a bill March 9 that would ban cannabis-infused candy in the state’s medical cannabis program in an effort to protect children, according to an AP News report.

The legislation would prohibit candy, lollipops, cotton candy, and fruit- and animal-shaped edibles that could appeal to children, the news outlet reported, and it would require that all cannabis-infused food or its packaging bear a stamp with dosage information.

A similar bill already passed the Missouri House, AP news reported, and the Senate’s 28-1 vote sends the revised version of the legislation back to the House for consideration.
