The federal government released the findings of its public consultation recreational cannabis and unveiled how the packaging will look. Similar to the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) logo, the packaging will be non-discreet.
While producers will be allowed to use one uniform colour on packaging, the use of fluorescent or metallic colours will be prohibited. So will glossy coatings, embossing, texture, foil, cut-outs, peel-away labels, and package inserts.
Each package must display one of six suggested warnings on a bright yellow background. Suggestions include, “Cannabis can be addictive”, “Regular use of cannabis can increase the risk of psychosis and schizophrenia”, and “Adolescents are at great risk of harms from cannabis”
