It's time to talk to your kids about Edibles
Although it's illegal for someone under 21 to possess or consume Marijuana, marijuana infused edibles will be popping up in Marijuana retails stores across the state soon. Many of these products have more than one serving of THC in each edible. In CO, a serving size is 10 mg, but they are selling candy bars and cookies with 100mg in each candy or cookie. Do you or your kids eat a portion of a cookie or the whole cookie? Would you know if a cookie had Marijuana in it ... what if it wasn't in a wrapper?
