A burning question that seems to come up among many baker friends: Is it legal to take possession of THC butter or some other product from a medical marijuana dispensary to make food products as a contract manufacturer?
Word on the street is this market can be very lucrative for small food businesses.
According to a fellow at Norml: “No.” Although a workaround might be joining a “co-operative” as part of the business. While he suggested the baker must have a medical marijuana card, it doesn’t seem like you’d be able to sell products using the product that you’d gotten under your own card.
For now perhaps making vanilla mixes and other food products, under a regular old food license, are the best bet, for the dispensaries to sell or blend together themselves. (My mind is reeling with ideas.)
He noted that Norml is working on getting legislation passed for all sorts of service providers related to the dispensaries.
