Edibles are legal for adults 21 and older in the state of Colorado, but a new study says they’re not safe.
Edibles are also illegal in Washington, Oregon, Vermont and Montana.
The Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) said in a statement on Friday that the state’s edibles law was designed to provide more options for consumers and that it “does not require consumption by adults.”
According to the WSLCB, the edibles laws do not specifically include a list of foods that can be consumed by adults.
WSLCBC added that its enforcement actions were based on a range of factors including the type of food, the amount of THC, the type and amount of alcohol, and whether the person was under 21.
A marijuana dispensary in Seattle that sold edibles has been fined $2,000 by state regulators, according to the Seattle Times.
The WSLCb also said it was notifying marijuana businesses that are operating in Washington about the edibility regulations.
According to The Washington Post, the WSBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment from ABC News.
A recent study found that marijuana smokers had a 10 percent increased risk of death compared to non-smokers, according the Associated Press.
Marijuana users in Washington have been able to legally possess the drug since 2013, when the state began allowing medical use.
