Mislabeled Medical Marijuana

Research released on June 23, 2015 in the Journal of the American Medical Association reveals that 83 percent of legally obtained edible marijuana is mislabeled with incorrect THC amounts.Guess what??!?

Most likely, you aren’t getting what you paid for – even when you purchase edible marijuana from legal dispensaries. It turns out that a MASSIVE 83 percent of edible marijuana products sold legally were found to contain amounts of THC which were incorrectly identified on the label.

Read the entire post here for all the details.

Shouldn’t we find a way to regulate the labeling on these drug products? Why is this different than other drugs and drug products on the market? The answer is in the fact that marijuana is still classified as a Schedule I substance under the U.S. Controlled Substances Act. That means that the federal government can not regulate marijuana. If the federal government can not regulate it, shouldn’t the states legally allowing the usage of marijuana be tasked with regulations and quality control?
