Random tests for pesticides in pot to begin

 | September 15, 2016

Washington will start random testing for illegal pesticides in pot, becoming the first state to carry out such tests.

In an agreement announced Thursday, the state Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) and the Department of Agriculture (WSDA) will cooperate on testing about 900 samples a year.

“This is a significant milestone on the road toward consumer protection,” said Steve Fuller, WSDA policy adviser.
