Child-resistant packaging rules apply to medical and recreational marijuana products currently available as a way to safeguard children while making medicines accessible to the elderly, much like prescription medicines.  The Poison Prevention Packaging Act establishes the standards for child-safe packaging on many products, including those containing medical and recreational marijuana products.
