Edible marijuana products in Colorado may soon come labeled with a red stop sign, according to a draft of new rules released Tuesday by state marijuana regulators.
The state may also ban the word “candy” from edible pot products, even if they’re sweets such as suckers or gummy chews.

Regulators rejected an earlier proposal to mark edible pot with a weed-leaf symbol after a parents’ group claimed the symbol would simply attract children, not dissuade them.
