Vermont regulators have removed cannabis potentially contaminated with a pesticide from five retail stores after a consumer reported feeling sick after smoking some.
Vermont’s Cannabis Control Board issued a consumer protection warning last week for all strains of cannabis produced by grower Holland Cannabis Co. due to pesticide contamination. Customers who purchased cannabis grown by Holland Cannabis at the five particular stores are asked to return it to the retailers.
The stores are Zenbarn, in Waterbury; The High Country Cannabis, in Derby; The Green Man, in St. Johnsbury; Lamoille County Cannabis, in Morrisville, and Capital Cannabis Company, in Montpelier.
The person who purchased cannabis from the Derby store reported headaches, stomach ache, and nausea, James Pepper, chairman of the Cannabis Control Board, said Friday.

Samples from the other four retailers are being tested, and the board expects to have some results as soon as Monday, he said.
