Group says cannabis-infused beverage restrictions too severe
An alliance of alcohol and cannabis companies wants the government to change proposed rules on edibles, particularly concerning cannabis-infused beverages.
They say by making branding more difficult for licensed producers, the government is making it more difficult to compete with the black market.
The federal government says edible cannabis will be legal by October. But the Cannabis Beverage Producers Alliance, which has 10 member companies, says the regulations around cannabis-infused drinks are too restrictive.The regulations include restrictions on packaging, dosage and manufacturing conditions.
