False Advertising Is Prohibited on Labels
Video Transcribed: We are continuing with the question of, what are the general packaging and labeling requirements for marijuana products being transferred to dispensaries or by dispensaries. I am an Oklahoma marijuana lawyer, Ope Adegbuyi.
In my last video, I talked about the first seven requirements. Now I’ll be talking about the remaining five requirements.
The OMMA continues to state that packages and labels shall not make any claims or statements, that medical marijuana or medical marijuana products provide health or physical benefits to the patients.
Next, packages and labels shall not contain the logo of the Oklahoma State Department of Health or the OMMA. After that, it also states that packages and labels shall not contain any universal symbol from another state. Any statements that the medical marijuana was grown in another state or any depiction, symbols, or other information that could cause medical… reasonable patients, sorry, to be confused as to what state of origin the marijuana is from.
The next requirement is label shall be designed and applied in a manner that does not cause patient confusion regarding the package’s content, potency, or other required information. Sorry. In the event that any package or immediate container of medical marijuana or medical marijuana product is relabeled, all prior labels must be removed in entirety prior to the new label being applied. Covering an initial label with an updated label is prohibited.
The last requirement is all packaging and labeling must contain current and accurate information on file with the authority including but not limited to the licensee’s legal name, trade name, and license number.
