The Cannabis Control Board in New York is taking another step setting up the launch of cannabis’ adult-use retail market with the advancing of regulations designed to help protect public health and reduce waste.
The proposed regulations include requirements for child-resistant packaging and labeling that identifies products that contain THC.
This is meant to help limit the marketing of products that contain THC to adult-only audiences and set procedures to ensure products are safe for consumption.
Gov. Kathy Hochul also signed legislation in February that qualifies New York-based farms that have previously grown hemp in New York state to be the first to make adult-use cannabis sales with products grown by farmers licensed. 
Over 200 applications have already been submitted to the Office of Cannabis Management, and the Cannabis Control Board has approved an additional 16 conditional cultivator licenses, bringing the farm total to 162.
