Two Months Into Uncle Ike’s Pesticide Testing and They Already Have a Failure

Two months into Uncle Ike’s brand new pesticide testing program and the busy pot shop has already nabbed its first failure. A concentrate tested positive for having 1.5 times the state’s limit for piperonyl butoxide, a pesticide usually used in conjunction with other insecticides.

Ian Eisenberg, the owner of the pot retailer, said it didn’t surprise him how quickly his new program found a failure. He pointed to a recent report that found that over 40 percent of the pot products tested at the Washington State Department of Agriculture failed for containing illegal amounts of pesticides.
