California Cannabis Dispensary Regulations Prohibiting Minors Not Working As Hoped, According To Study – Patch.com
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A USC-UC San Diego study released today found that California restrictions prohibiting children from cannabis dispensaries and associated cannabis marketing are not working as well as policymakers had hoped.
The study in JAMA Pediatrics evaluated just how regulations designed to protect minors have held up in the five years since voters legalized cannabis.
Researchers looked at 700 licensed cannabis dispensaries in California and found that many retail locations have inadequate screening processes, which allow minors to enter and view items that should be restricted to adults, 21 and older.
