Hi. No, the potency issue is a myth. If you talk to the hippies from the '60s and '70s they'll tell you that most of the marijuana at the time was of the "one hit" variety. Some of the famous "brand" names of the time became famous for a reason.
I personally would hope that any food labeling made to look like candy, or in any way attractive to children or teens, be done away with, and appropriate packaging be the norm for such food products.

That and it's now being attractively marketed as "food" that the kids can get into. I don't think this is going to end well.
There are dozens of household items that can kill children if they get their hands on it and you're worried that they might eat a pot brownie and get really high for awhile with no actual threat to their life?
People shouldn't leave prescription medication, OTC medication, cigarettes, alcohol, cleaning products, flammables, sharp things, etc. laying around for kids to get into. The whole stupid argument that "children could get into the edibles!" is just another distraction meant to elicit an emotional response.
An editorial in the Journal of the American Medical Association argues there's little evidence to support most uses of medical marijuana in the 23 states and District of Columbia that have legalized it.
The editorial contends states which have approved medical marijuana did so based on "low-quality scientific evidence, anecdotal reports, individual testimonials, legislative initiatives, and public opinion."
