Kush Bottles CEO Nick Kovacevich on KING-TV
Interview focused on State's efforts to update rules regarding cannabis packaging and child safety.
SANTA ANA, Calif., Oct. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kush Bottles, North America's premier supplier of certified child-resistant packaging, accessories and consulting services for the medical and recreational marijuana industry, announced that company CEO and co-founder Nick Kovacevich was featured on KING-TV News in Seattle, Washington.
"State regulators are focused on protecting children from accidentally ingesting pot," KING 5's Meg Coyle stated. She spoke with Kovacevich about ways to keep cannabis safe and out of kids hands.
The interview covered vital topics including the differences in child safe packaging regulations for recreational versus medical marijuana in Washington State.
Kovacevich appeared on KING 5 just prior to meeting with state officials where he was asked to provide regulators with input regarding better ways to safeguard minors from cannabis ingestion.
The Founder and CEO of Kush Bottles stated that he and his team are frequently requested as expert consultants by state officials to help them craft sensible regulations that better protect children from cannabis. He added that dispensary owners also request consultations to help them stay in compliance with the myriad of rules covering recreational and medical marijuana. He noted that his company does not charge for those consultations.
Lawmakers just gave the people of Washington the right to responsibly use cannabis. Kovacevich stated. "Let's do everything in our power to protect that right and make sure people are using in a safe and accountable manner."
Kovacevich commented that he is currently focusing on updating the rules regarding recreational marijuana, but will circle back and address the medical marijuana regulations in short order.
When asked if he was getting any pushback from dispensary owners, Kovacevich said that everyone is pleased that he is spearheading regulatory reform that would help better protect children from accidental ingestion, because just one unfortunate incident could be a major setback for the entire industry.
Kovacevich, who co-founded the Kush Bottles in 2010, recently assumed the role of CEO.
