Missouri Senate Passes Ban On Marijuana-Infused Candy
Missouri senators have passed a bill to ban marijuana-infused candy for medical use.
State senators voted 28-1 for the bill Monday. It now heads to the state House.
The bill would prohibit edible marijuana products that could be geared toward children, such as candies or gummies shaped like animals or fruit.
The measure also includes stiff penalties for people caught with the lethal opioid fentanyl. Under the bill, people caught selling 20 milligrams of fentanyl or carfentanil would face between 10 years and life in prison.
The bill also adds criminal penalties for possessing what are known as date-rape drugs.
