US (NV): Contaminated cannabis found in more than 100 dispensaries

According to a press release published Thursday by the Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board (CCB), contaminated edibles, flower, pre-rolls, and concentrates from numerous brands were sold by more than a hundred marijuana dispensaries between Aug. 31, 2021, and Jan. 9, 2023. This includes some dispensaries in Reno, Sparks, and Las Vegas.

The products were harvested at Clark Natural Medicinal Solutions, LLC, and treated with ethephon, a plant growth regulator classified as moderately acutely toxic by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. CCB officials say ethephon is not on the list of pesticides testing facilities must look for.

“There is no reason to believe the cannabis sales facilities or cannabis testing facilities had any knowledge of the use of this unapproved pesticide,” they wrote.
