PA medical cannabis regulators instruct all licensed growers & processors to “resubmit vaporized cannabis products that contain additives for another approval”

And by the end of the month too..

MJ Biz reports

In an unprecedented move, Pennsylvania medical marijuana regulators are ordering every licensed grower/processor to resubmit vaporized cannabis products that contain additives for another approval – a move that experts fear could cause serious product disruptions and financial losses.

Vaporized products include inhalers, vape pens and portable vaporizers. The directive includes any product that is used in an inhalation process such as shatter.

The product reapprovals, detailing each ingredient, must be submitted to state regulators by Nov. 30, according to a recent email from Sunny Podolak, the state health department’s chief compliance officer.

The email warns that disciplinary action – including possible license suspension or revocation – could occur if a licensed grower/processor doesn’t comply with the request and continues to sell vaporized products after that date.

Pennsylvania cannabis attorney Judith Cassel characterized the request as “onerous and arbitrary.”

“This could mean millions of dollars of inhalation products, previously approved, could now be required to be destroyed,” Cassel told MJBizDaily in a telephone interview.

Such products account for the second-largest category of MMJ sales in Pennsylvania, she said.
