Marijuana gummy bears won’t be legal in Colorado starting next month.
Neither will marijuana products in the shape of any other animal. Or fruits. Or people.
A bill signed into law Friday by Gov. John Hickenlooper makes it a crime to sell pot-infused candies in certain shapes.
Sponsors say that gummy bears, gummy worms and chewy candies shaped like fruits are too attractive to children.
Colorado already requires edible marijuana to come with a stamp that says the item includes THC, marijuana’s intoxicating ingredient. That requirement takes effect later this year.
The gummy bear ban takes effect July 1.
