Arizona May Finally Begin Lab Testing Medical Cannabis for Contaminants
Under the Arizona measure, medical cannabis product manufacturers would be required to list all the chemical agents used on that product. Samples of the product would then be collected by either the state or a third-party contractor and tested to be sure the results match the product label. The lab would also perform tests to look specifically for mold.
“From an industry perspective I am certainly not opposed to it,” said Laura Bianchi, who heads the cannabis department at Scottsdale-based Rose Law Group and represents companies growing, distributing, and selling medical cannabis. “In fact I think testing requirements are an important component of any medical product.”
