Such regulation of pot snacks might have kept one San Francisco resident from disrupting a flight from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. According to the New York Daily News, Kinman Chan screamed and ran to the plane’s bathroom and had to be subdued by flight staff.

The Department of Public Health published the regulations in early July.
