Looks like Colorado will need to sort out this mess. Maybe Oregon can help with their stricter sets of rules. The next issue will be enforcement.
The Cannabist reports..
For the 10th time in three months, a Colorado marijuana company is voluntarily recalling pot products because they contain potentially dangerous pesticides — chemicals that “constitute a threat to the public safety” when applied to cannabis, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper wrote in an executive order in mid-November.
Denver-based EdiPure is recalling 7,770 packages of pot-infused edibles because they were made with contaminated marijuana the company purchased from independent cultivators, the Denver Department of Environmental Health said Tuesday in a news release. This is EdiPure’s second pesticide-related recall in five weeks; In late-October, EdiPure announced the recall of 20,000 packages of edibles.
EdiPure, which has now recalled more tainted pot-infused products than any other cannabis business in the state, has also been embroiled in a lawsuit in Denver District Court over brand ownership; The case involves two partners — Green Cross and EPMM Colorado — claiming ownership of EdiPure, one of Colorado’s most successful edibles companies
