In Colorado, the previous sixteen weeks have seen fifteen recalls of items infused with marijuana due to pesticides, including the biggest recall a week ago. The state is one of a few that now allow testing of recreational cannabis for pollutants. Be that as it may, in Arizona, the results of medical marijuana merchants and cultivators never have been authoritatively examined. On the off chance that the state endorses recreational use in November, that is going to change — with a presumable increase in marijuana prices.
Buds, concentrates such as shatter, as well as edibles, could contain moderately large amounts of pesticides and different pollutants, and Colorado’s 85,000 or more qualified patients would never know. The 2010 Arizona Medical Marijuana Act requires no such testing on the grounds that its drafters were concerned it may drive up the expense of the drug.
Washington, similar to Arizona, had no testing for its medicinal cannabis program, and no testing is required in its voter-endorsed 2012 recreational law. Be that as it may, with the dispatch of grown-up use cannabis stores and enthusiasm, people tend to stay away from pesticides. Washington began a system in October that honors clean-testing dispensaries with an “enhanced seal of approval” to show clients.
Arizona medicinal cannabis laws demand that dispensaries tell the state about the pesticides it uses on products it develops or offers, however, that is it. There’s no subsequent meet-up the data or implementation. Oregon, in the meantime, has one of the strictest contaminant programs in the nation and will start testing this year for 59 unique pesticides. The move is relied upon to drive up costs primarily in the short-term.
Chair of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Arizona, J.P. Holyoak, states that a testing mandate was added into the initiative because “consumer safety is paramount.”
