The cannabis industry has a SERIOUS problem with pesticides, and it's not just in unregulated states. Even in regulated states such as Oregon, the current testing requirements are only now shining a light on the residual pesticides leftover in cannabis products - and it is significant. Currently over 25% of concentrates and extracts are failing testing requirements for pesticides in Oregon. The prevalence of these toxic chemicals should require that regulation be tighter on cannabis operators, as this is a matter of public safety. However, recent proposed regulation in Oregon, is actually trying to loosen the rules on lab testing requirements. As a matter of public safety, this regulation must not pass.
