Attorney General, Consumer Protection Commissioner Announce PSA Regarding Illegal, Unsafe Cannabis Edibles

Posted on March 19, 2024

In a press release, Attorney General Tong and Department of Consumer Protection Commissioner Cafferelli announced the launch of a public service announcement regarding illegal, unsafe cannabis edibles made to look like common kid-friendly snacks.

“We’re still seeing highly potent illegal cannabis products that look like common kid snacks. These edibles are untested and unsafe, and can land kids in the hospital. If you see these products, keep them away from children and report them at ct.gov/reportillegalcannabis,” said Attorney General Tong. “After months of sustained enforcement and public education, we’re seeing fewer and fewer of these dangerous illegal products. This PSA is an important next step in those ongoing efforts to protect Connecticut kids.”

“DCP is proud to partner with the Attorney General on this important educational campaign,” Commissioner Cafferelli. “While our teams have worked hard to discourage the sale and distribution of these illegal and potentially dangerous unregulated products, it is also important to make sure children and families in our state are aware of the dangers of consuming these products. This educational campaign will help us spread the word and prevent Connecticut children from accidentally consuming illegal cannabis products that look like common snacks.”
