Tick Segerblom and Patricia Farley, the state Senators, want to make cannabis edibles less attractive to kids. Their new bill, known as Senate Bill 344, would apply numerous restrictions to weed edibles in Nevada. The bill has recently passed the Senate and was heard in the Assembly Judiciary Committee.
Senate Bill 344 would ban cannabis edibles shaped like balloons, cartoon characters, mascots, toys, fruit, and anything that looks like a sweet candy. Moreover, all edibles would have to be sold in non-transparent packaging. Pot-infused ice-cream would also be prohibited.
