Oregon issues first ‘health alert’ for tainted marijuana

Oregon issues first ‘health alert’ for tainted marijuana

Noelle Crombie October 21, 2016

Oregon late Friday issued its first “health alert” for cannabis tainted with high levels of pesticide — in this case, two strains sold by a McMinnville dispensary.

About 130 people bought the dried flowers between Oct. 15 and Oct. 17. Lab testing found the products were contaminated with spinosad, a common insecticide used in the marijuana industry.

The notice represents a major change in how Oregon deals with pesticides and marijuana.
