The Puyallup Tribe Is Running the Pot Lab of the Future

The Puyallup Tribe Is Running the Pot Lab of the Future

Lester Black | Jul 12, 2017

I‘ve bought weed on the illegal market longer than the legal market, so it’s a bit of a shock to see cannabis being tested at Medicine Creek Analytics: a mechanical arm picking up and dropping off little vials, a separate arm rhythmically stabbing test tubes with a long needle… I began to wonder what was in all that illegal weed I’d smoked over the years.

Thanks to Medicine Creek and the 17 other labs approved by the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) to test the safety of the state’s legal weed, we can find out exactly what is in the weed sold at dispensaries across the state. And Medicine Creek, which is owned and operated by the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, is especially good at determining what’s in our weed. It has equipment that can discern what chemicals are present at one-billionth per gram of pot.
