At 400 milligrams of THC, the candy contains 40 times the legal limit for cannabis food, the packaging does not meet Health Canada regulations and no licensed manufacturers sell a product called “Buzzy Peaches”. A quick internet search also reveals that the product is available on an unlicensed mail order website.

“The police are insincere,” tweeted cannabis lawyer Harrison Jordan in response to the release.

After a reporter informed the police of the statement, the police spokesman reportedly stood by “what the statement said”.

Absolutely pathetic that that @TorontoPolice would double up on a demonstrably false statement by them rather than admitting a mistake. How can this help create public distrust of the police? “Jordan replied on Twitter.

According to Health Canada regulations, cannabis foods can only be sold in simple, child-resistant packaging. Any edible product that mimics candy branding, like Maynard’s Fuzzy Peach, is against the law.

Legal foods must contain the standardized cannabis symbol for products that contain THC, which the illegal product appears to have mimicked, a health warning message and, among other restrictions, such as: B. Color, neither address young people nor make health-related claims.

The colorful packaging of the “Buzzy Peaches” violates federal packaging regulations, which restrict cannabis packaging to a single non-fluorescent color.

On Twitter, Jordan said he would continue to tweet about the statement until Toronto Police issue a fix.
