Even Colorado, which has legalized recreational use of pot, has now moved to ban THC-laced gummy bears and other candy or products that could fool children. Although the Colorado Department of Health has been asking for changes in the law since 2014, the new law only now takes effect on July 1st. According to reports, it took a spike in children being rushed to emergency rooms after ingesting THC-infused candy to make the change. In contrast, Floridians are going to be asked to green light THC gummy bears through Amendment 2 which will be on the ballot in November.
