State-licensed marijuana retail stores are just opening their doors in Washington and state regulators are still deciding what customers will find inside. Last month the Washington State Liquor Control Board told processors they will allow sweets, but not if they’re presented in a way that’s deemed "especially appealing to children." But regulators say they aren’t ruling out whole categories of candy – they may allow some gummies or lollipops. It’s all in the way the products are presented. Dr. Leslie Walker is chief of adolescent medicine at Seattle Children’s. She calls these rules a good start in preventing kids’ access to marijuana. But she says the hospital is seeing more kids admitted for accidentally ingesting it.
