Why is the FDA Silent on Candy-Named, State-Licensed Medical Cannabis?

The FDA has regulatory authority over medical cannabis through its review of investigational new drug applications and related processes. In the FDA’s extensive set of Questions and Answers about the FDA and Marijuana, the agency notes that it “is important to protect children from accidental ingestion of marijuana and products containing marijuana” and the “FDA recommends that these products are kept out of reach of children to reduce the risk of accidental ingestion.” However, the FDA is not making any recommendation that state-licensed medical cannabis dispensaries should refrain from giving their various cannabis products candy names that may attract children. The following are some examples of candy-named cannabis products that are available from licensed cannabis dispensaries in Montgomery County, MD, the home of US FDA.
