On February 14, 2017, The Washington Poison Center, with the partnership of the Washington Liquor and Cannabis Board, launched the Not For Kids warning symbol for identifying marijuana edible product. The Washington Poison Center (WAPC) developed the warning symbol as a deterrent for children who may access edible marijuana products purchased by adults in their home.

Not For Kids symbol in addition to our education and outreach services aims:

  1. To remind adults that the product with this symbol contains marijuana
  2. To equip parents and caregivers to have a conversation with their loved ones ages 1 to 21
  3. To provide a free, confidential, 24/7, medical helpline for emergencies for all individuals

In 2016, the Washington Poison Center received 280 marijuana related calls, with 49 calls occurring in children 0-5 years of age.
