Currently there are only seven dispensaries (excluding medical cannabis) in NYS, zero in the Hudson Valley, where an adult 21-years or older can legally buy cannabis.
Cannabis Law has provisions regarding packaging and labeling standards and safe storage, but there is little to no education or enforcement.
Unregulated cannabis products are being sold locally in gas stations, convenience stores, and smoke/vape shops as well as online.
These products are deceptively labeled to resemble candy and food products to attract children. This is so prevalent across NYS that enforcement efforts are making little headway.
Talk To Your Children
A serving size for a cannabis edible will affect users differently, based on the potency of the product and the user's age, size, metabolism, and tolerance.
Cannabis edibles can take as long as two hours to fully take effect, making it easy to overconsume.
Small serving sizes also make it easy to overconsume. For instance, a Cannabis infused chocolate bar can be 12 or more servings.
Even one cannabis gummy is too much for a child and can result in a medical emergency.
A majority of overdose cases involve children under the age of 5.
Talk to your children about this and reinforce that they should never eat anything that isn’t given to them by an adult that they trust.
