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 special labeling requirements?
