A regulatory task force will meet in Colorado on Wednesday to consider revising rules that govern the packaging requirements around edible marijuana products, after two high-profile deaths were linked to pot comestibles.

The meeting in Aurora will consider whether rules should be implemented to limit the amount of THC—the active ingredient in marijuana—in a “single serving” size of 10mg. Currently no requirement exists that edible marijuana products come in single-serving sizes, KUSA-TV reports.

The meeting comes after a 19-year-old leapt to his death from a building after reportedly consuming 65 mg of THC in a marijuana cookie. In another instance, police say a Denver man ate THC-infused candy before shooting and killing his wife.
