Giglio Urges Stiffer Penalties for Misleading Pot-Laced Product Packaging


Selling marijuana-infused foods in packaging that mimics brand-name snacks would be a felony punishable by up to seven years in prison under a bill proposed by the New York State legislator representing the North Fork.

Holding up a board with examples of products that look like widely sold products such as Cheetos, Sweet Tarts and Oreos — each with subtle indicators that they contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that gives users a feeling of euphoria — State Assemblywoman Jodi Giglio (R-Riverhead) rallied with fellow lawmakers calling for passage of the bill.
