MMJ regulations mandate that dispensaries, both medical and retail, sell cannabis products in child-resistant, non-transparent packaging. These new mandates are explained in the documents Marijuana Enforcement Division 1 CCR 212-1 issued September 9th, 2012, page 77, and Marijuana Enforcement Division 1 CCR 212-2 issued September 9th, 2012, pages 92 and 99.
Packaging must be designed or constructed to be significantly difficult for children five years of age and younger to open and not difficult for normal adults to use properly. The child-resistant mechanisms need to meet classification standards as determined by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), specifically classification standard 16 C.F.R. 1700.20 (1995) and classification standard D3475-12, http://www.astm.org/Standards/D3475.htm .
