THE WALL STREET JOURNAL REPORTS ON NACB NATIONAL STANDARDS LAUNCH

  January 29, 2018
Share: 

After several months of hard work among NACB Members and a team of regulatory experts, packaging consultants, cannabis advisors and NACB leadership, this week we published a draft of the first-ever National Standard for U.S. cannabis. As the Wall Street Journal said in reporting on the news, “[Cannabis operators] want to show that they can regulate themselves even though the federal government won’t” and “The proposed regulations govern topics such as tamper-resistant packaging, warnings for people with allergies or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and safeguards to prevent consumption by minors.”

 NACB Anticipates Federal Priorities

Time will tell just how significant a moment this is for our industry, but we are wholly confident that the care with which the NACB Packaging and Labeling Standard is being developed will pay huge dividends for cannabis operators over the long-term. From identifying an issue with so many implications for public health and safety and aligns with federal priorities, to following a deliberate process that is inclusive and welcomes input from anyone wishing to provide feedback, the goal is to have rules for the SRO that federal and state regulators will look to as a critical resource in creating or revising the law.
