In a conference call with reporters this afternoon, the Washington State Liquor and Control Board announced some serious action on pesticides for pot that’s been a seriously long time coming. Rick Garza, the agency’s director, outlined a $1.15 million program wherein the WSLCB will contract with the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) to set up a randomized pesticide testing scheme for the state’s cannabis producers.

It’s been a damn long time coming, but this agreement marks a major shift in the state’s attitude towards the use of disallowed pesticides on cannabis, which was widespread in the unregulated medical marijuana industry and didn’t exactly cease when weed was legalized.
