Medical Marijuana Labeling Requirements 101: Infographic

Proper medical marijuana labeling is essential for establishing your product in the marketplace. The first state in the USA to legalize medical cannabis was California in 1996.

They must also ensure that their packages for medical marijuana products are tamper proof, child-proof and in accordance with their local laws.
