San Francisco Issues Regulations for Making Pot Brownies

Thank you, San Francisco, for giving us official rules on how to make pot brownies.

Potbrownies NBC Bay Area reports that the city's Department of Public Health has now issued "Medical Cannabis Dispensary (MCD) Regulations for Preparation of Edible Cannabis Products," which translates into English as "How to Make Pot Brownies." The rules are, for now at least, directed at "legitimate edible cannabis treats at medical marijuana dispensaries," but NBC Bay Area notes that "if California voters pass Proposition 19, the Tax Cannabis Act that would effectively decriminalize the recreational use of the drug, you can expect similar regulations to apply to entrepreneurs looking to bake goods that will get you baked."

So what are the San Fran rules for whipping up pot brownies? They include:

  • Your pot brownies cannot require refrigeration;
  • No children and pets in the pot brownie preparation area;
  • Labeling must include the total weight of cannabis found in the pot brownies; and
  • You cannot package your pot brownies to make them look more attractive to children or to imitate candy.

Did you stoner entrepreneurs out there catch all that? No? Maybe re-read it in the morning, then.
