Houston marijuana operation accused of using pesticides, falsifying records in rare criminal case
The state is taking the unusual step of filing criminal charges against the operators of a Houston cannabis business based on accusations they sprayed potentially toxic pesticides on marijuana plants.
A state environmental crimes prosecutor this week filed misdemeanor charges of pesticide pollution, misuse of pesticide and reckless endangerment against Ron and Lacey Bass and their businesses, marijuana cultivator Calm N Collective LLC and retailer Houston Grass Station LLC.
The charging documents, filed in Palmer on Monday, also indicate plans to charge the couple with falsifying business records, a felony.
