Medical marijuana and edibles are a common topic of debate in the medical community

One of the biggest developments in the business of Marijuana is the explosion of the use of Marijuana edibles. In Colorado, where recreational marijuana is legal, the CDC estimates that about 49% or dispensary sales come from edibles. But with that boom in sales has come criticism that a lack of regulation has created a dangerous product.
