SALEM, Ore. -- State officials are backing off their proposal to prohibit sales of pot-infused treats at Oregon medical marijuana stores.

In a new set of rules released Monday, the Oregon Health Authority seeks only to ban marijuana-laced products that are made or packaged in ways that might appeal to children.

They prohibit drug-infused goods that are brightly colored or formed in the shape of animals, toys or candies. They also require marijuana products to be sold in child-proof containers free of cartoons or bright colors.

The rules take effect Tuesday, but they could change based on public comments received during a six-month rule-making process.
