Retail and Medical Marijuana in Colorado, Washington State and Canada are required to be dispensed in Child Resistant Packaging.
All of the packaging sold by MJBottles which are labeled as “child resistant” are in compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Commission standards.
The requirements for packaging to be considered “Child Resistant” is that it must be “designed or constructed to be significantly difficult for children under five years of age to open and not difficult for normal adults to use properly as defined by 16 C.F.R. 1700.20 (1995) and ASTM
classification standard D3475-13.”
These standards require specific testing to be conducted on the
packaging to ensure that it is sufficiently difficult for children to open.
The State of Colorado rules state that in order to ensure compliance with 16 C.F.R. 1700.20:
- A licensee can use packaging listed on the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website, which has developed a non-exhaustive list of packages that have met the testing standards.
The list can be found at the following address:
- If a licensee wishes to use special packaging not listed on the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website, the licensee should have the following information available:
- A report issued after July 1, 1995 from the entity that conducted the testing required by 16 C.F.R. 1700.20 (1995) that details how the tests were conducted and the results of the test. A licensee can obtain this report from its packaging supplier or the package’s manufacturer.
