Labels on Cannabis Products to Warn of Mental Health Risks

SB 1097 (Pan) – would require the packaging of cannabis goods to prominently feature a rotating series of warning labels about the health risks of cannabis use; requires all advertisements by cannabis businesses and services to also prominently feature those warnings; and requires the Department of Cannabis Control (DCC), in consultation with the Department of Public Health (CDPH), to create a brochure about safer cannabis use, which must then be provided to consumers by cannabis businesses.

“Today’s turbocharged products are turbocharging the harms associated with cannabis,” says Dr. Lynn Silver with the Public Health Institute, a nonprofit sponsoring the proposed labeling legislation, the Cannabis Right to Know Act.
