Weights, measures group seeks to set standards for cannabis industry MJBizDaily


The National Conference of Weights and Measures (NCWM) has formed a marijuana task group to develop universal standards for the cannabis industry.

Several groups have tried to create a body of standards, but developing industrywide guidelines has been a challenge.

The NCWM is a nonprofit association of state and local weights and measures officials, federal agencies, manufacturers, retailers and consumers, according to a news release.

The Nebraska-based group’s focus is on customer protection and maintaining a level playing field for businesses, according to the release.

The NCWM hopes to answer several questions involving the cannabis sector, including:

What are the precision requirements for scales used in direct sales?
What is the prescribed method of sale (weight, volume or count) for the various forms of cannabis?

Are there any Labeling Requirements?
