Beginning Saturday, medical and recreational marijuana edibles and other cannabis products sold in Colorado will be stamped with a new “universal symbol” aimed at raising public safety awareness.
The universal symbol — a diamond enclosing the notations “! THC” or “! THC M” — is part of a bundle of new state marijuana regulations going into effect on Oct. 1. In addition to new equivalency regulations for retail marijuana, other rules effective Saturday include the barring of the words “candy” or “candies” in marijuana products as well as the inclusion of potency and contaminant testing information.
Meanwhile, have there been any regulatory changes in the many cleaning products found in the common supermarket that confusingly look like drinks?
Apparently not (at least as of last March)…

What about the laundry detergent balls that kids tragically eat by mistake?
Apparently not (at least as of July)…
Once again in the land of hypocrisy, we have the cannabis exception to the rule.
‘Liberty for me, but not for thee!’ is a weapon of mass destruction. Hitler abused it, as apparently does every other “leadership” system from now throughout history.
So too is selfishly reckless and discriminatory fear-mongering pressed into mass-rights-infringing law — albeit this weapon usually forms the prior one.
If we are going to continue subjecting our society to the foolish idea that we can trust our “leaders” (genuine power always spans both the private and public sectors) to negate their own abuses to complexly regulate tragedy out of our lives (regardless of expense in taxpayer/consumer money, energy, and ironically health), can we at least always effectively target those two monstrously destructive weapons to show some dominating societal competence?
I am an honest freak (or reasonably responsibly balanced "misfit", if you prefer) of an artist working and resting to best carefully contribute towards helping society. Too many people abuse reasoning (e.g. 'partial truth = whole truth' scam), while I exercise reason to explore and express whole truth without any conflict-of-interest -- all within a sometimes offbeat style of psychedelic artistry.
