SPOKANE, Wash. – A month after sales of recreational marijuana started in Washington State, you still cannot buy edible pot products in Eastern Washington.

Anyone looking to make and sell recreational edible marijuana faces challenges in getting approval.  As another pot shop opened on Friday, KREM 2 News was told you could be able to buy edible products soon.

There are a separate set of regulations focusing on packaging. The owner of Satori in North Spokane said he thinks they could be inside his store soon.

“We have two or three companies in the works and we should have those toward the end of this month, next month for sure,” said owner, Justin Wilson.

Before anyone can buy marijuana in edible form, the industry will have to put extra effort to make sure the products do not appeal to children in any way.

“The regulations and the FDA, I believe there are issues with dairy, candies and suckers,” said Wilson.

The Liquor Control Board has said in addition to approving packaging and labeling for edibles, they will need to approve a kitchen making edibles.
