Public Review Completes Development Process

Public Review of FOCUS Cannabis Standards Successful

From March 11 through April 8, FOCUS collected feedback on each line item in the first eight FOCUS Standards, gathering detailed input from more than 70 diverse stakeholders including industry leaders, legislators, government regulators, scientists, educators, doctors, nurses, patients, consumers, first responders, law enforcement, safety organizations, labor unions and many others.

Upon completion of the review, the FOCUS Standards Development Committee analyzed the input and revised the standards according to our established processes. The feedback received validated the standards and led to significant enhancement and clarification prior to their completion and release in July 2016.

Collecting and applying input from a public review is a required step in the voluntary-consensus process FOCUS uses to develop standards.

The FOCUS team is grateful to those that participated in this critical phase of the standards development process, and to everyone else who has helped make the FOCUS vision a reality. Their commitment and collaboration has produced this incredible, extremely valuable, comprehensive body of work.
