Kush Bottles CEO Comments on Election Results Legalizing Marijuana in Oregon, Alaska and DC

Industry expert shares thoughts and concerns about new laws

SANTA ANA, Calif., Nov. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kush Bottles, North America's premier supplier of child-resistant packaging and branding solutions for the marijuana industry, commented on the recent election results that brought legal marijuana to Oregon, Alaska, and the District of Columbia.

Kush Bottles Co-founder and CEO, Nicholas Kovacevich, shared his enthusiasm about the recent legalizations, but also voiced some concerns.

"We are pleased that voters continue to support safe-access to marijuana, and that more states are adopting laws that make cannabis and cannabis-infused products available in a safe, sensible, and regulated fashion," he commented. "Now we face the task of assuring that all marijuana products in these newly legalized areas are packaged, labeled, and distributed in a child-safe manner. As an emerging industry, it is vital that we take all steps necessary to prevent accidental ingestions, and that we keep the product out of the hands of minors."

Kush Bottles is recognized as the leading advocate for child safety within the marijuana industry. Their child-resistant line of containers have been certified by independent laboratories, in accordance with the strict standards set forth by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Since 2010, Kush Bottles and Kovacevich have pioneered the marijuana packaging industry, often working with state regulators and legislators to find safe solutions for the many nuances of the cannabis industry.  The company also works directly with hundreds of producers, processors, and retailers to create branded packaging solutions that meet and exceed all state requirements.

"We are already servicing the Oregon market and look forward to helping new entities open their doors for business, as well as assist medical marijuana facilities in making the transition to retail operations," Kovacevich said.

Kush Bottles is the market leader in Colorado, Washington, California and other states with legal marijuana programs, and has offices and distribution centers in key areas throughout the nation.

In addition to providing the widest range of certified child-resistant packaging solutions including Pop Top bottles, Kush Bottles also offers a full line of cannabis apparel; smoking accessories such as rollers, papers, and grinders; and gift packages designed to appeal to the cannabis connoisseur.
