CAN: LPs call on feds to increase edible THC limits to curb illicit market

A leading cannabis company is urging the Canadian government to increase limits on edibles as a way to minimize the illicit market and ensure safety.

Two-thirds of edibles customers in Canada are going to the illicit market for unsafe and improperly dosed products, according to cannabis company Indiva. The group wants to see limits per package increase from 10 mg to 100 mg to curb those going to illegal suppliers where limits aren’t an issue.

CEO Niel Marotta called the potency limit a $500-million market failure. 

If the legal industry cannot match what the illicit market offers, Marotta says there will be no competition, jeopardizing the market and public safety. “It holds back the whole market when you give someone a reason to go back to an illicit website or store.”
