Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves signed the state’s medical cannabis legislation into law in February, and the Mississippi Department of Health has since set to work on drafting the regulations that will govern the program.
The rules, which are now available for public review and comment, outline specific guidelines for testing facilities on monitoring THC levels and detecting potential contaminants, the news outlet reported.
Regulators have also proposed advertising and marketing restrictions that will prohibit medical cannabis companies from advertising on television and billboards, WLBT reported.
A third proposal would outline work requirements for cannabis employees, such as requiring that workers are at least 21 years old with no felonies on their criminal records, according to the news outlet.
The public comment period on the proposed regulations runs through April 15.
