Kush Bottles Offers Free Guidance on Approved Packaging Regulations to Boulder Marijuana Dispensaries

Many medical marijuana dispensaries facing challenges in conversion to recreational sales

DENVER, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kush Bottles, North America's premier supplier of certified, child-resistant packaging and Colorado-compliant Philips Rx Pop Top bottles for the marijuana industry, announced today that they will offer free guidance to dispensary owners to help them through the maze of regulations regarding proper labeling and packaging of marijuana and edibles, as they transition from medical to recreational sales.

Boulder medical marijuana businesses planning to convert to recreational cannabis sales will have until May 31 to do so, or be required to apply as if they were a new marijuana business under ordinance changes proposed by the City Attorney's Office.

The Boulder City Council decided last November to allow existing medical marijuana businesses to convert to recreational sales or operate in "co-location," under which they can sell both recreational and medical marijuana, even if their location would not be allowed for a new marijuana business. The proposed ordinance also changes and clarifies some rules regarding signage and product packaging.

However, the deadline is looming for the dispensaries to convert, and many dispensary operators are reportedly mired down in what appear to be conflicting regulations and requirements.

Kush Bottles Colorado is the industry's leading expert on Colorado marijuana packaging regulations, both for medical and recreational sales, and can offer consultation to dispensary owners at no cost.

As previously reported in the Denver Post, the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) is increasing manpower, and almost doubling the size of their staff in order to clamp down on dispensaries that aren't up to code.

"If you have been getting away with stuff because the state was underfunded, you may find yourself not only out of business, but in jail," said Jeff Gard, a Boulder lawyer who represents marijuana businesses, as reported by the Post.

Ben Wu, CEO of Kush Bottles, said that his team is ready to help any dispensary owner make the transition from medical to recreational sales and stay 100% compliant, with state-approved child-resistant labels and packaging.

"We want to help dispensary owners and operators make the transition to adult-use sales, and avoid fines and potential license revocation," he stated. "We offer consultations at no cost so that dispensaries can smoothly transition and stay in compliance."
