JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use published new rules on its website that now allow the state’s medical marijuana industry to start selling edibles.
According to the rules the edibles must be lozenges, baked goods, gelatins, chocolates or drink powders.
The emergency rules state that edibles must not contain any color additives, bear a resemblance to commercially available candy, be decorated with icing or sprinkles or be a primary or bright color.
Each dispensary must get approval from the state for each edible product before it is allowed to go on the market.
Coming up at 5:15 Action News Jax Reporter Jamarlo Phillips met virtually with a medical marijuana dispensary in Jacksonville who has already announced their intention to get their product out on the market, saying that once its products are approved by the DOH, they will be releasing an assortment of edible products.
