Missouri bill looks to restrict marijuana-infused candy production, marketing

Marijuana Edible Gummies

MISSOURI – Missouri senators pass a bill that would modify several provisions to controlled substances, including marijuana-infused candy.

State senators voted 28-1 for the bill (SB 523) Monday, March 10, 2020. It now heads to the House.

The bill “prohibits the sale of edible marijuana-infused products that are designed, produced, or marketed in a manner to appeal to persons under 18 years of age, including candies, gummies, lollipops, cotton candy, or products in the shape of a human, animal, or fruit.”

The measure also increases penalties for drug trafficking fentanyl and possession of what are known as date-rape drugs.

A separate bill in the Senate, SB 764, has a similar marijuana-infused candy product provision.
