For today's weed news we go to the great city of Sacramento.
Earlier this year, the state of California enacted new regulation that requires that all cannabis sold in California has to undergo mandatory quality testing.
Well, now, due to the negligence of one testing facility, millions of dollars worth of cannabis may have to be destroyed.
As it turns out, Sequoia Analytical Lab in Sacramento was caught falsifying test results and not even testing for required pesticides. This had apparently been going on for over four months now. Marc Foster, the director of Sequoia Analytical Lab has since been forced to give up his business license and close up shop.
According to the California Bureau of Cannabis Control, over 29 different cannabis distributors have been affected by Sequoia Analytical Lab's negligence. In total, we are talking about 800 different batches of cannabis, each of which can weigh up to 50 pounds.
Affected retailers have been contacted and asked to resubmit samples of their product for testing elsewhere. Although this is probably a big headache for a lot of ganjapreneurs, I feel like it's still better than having to throw all your product away.
"We work with a lot of vendors here, both big box and artisan type. And this has been pretty painful for some of our smaller vendors," said Tom Fortunato, CEO of BSeen Distribution, one of the distributors affected most by this weed recall.
Hopefully they'll get all this sorted out soon and get the weed in question back to dispensary shelves where it belongs. It would be so sad to watch so much weed go to waste. But then again, if it's got a bunch of pesticides and shit in it, I wouldn't want to smoke it.
It's crazy how much bullshit one person's negligence can cause. I guess the bright side is that they found out what was going on and put a stop to it quickly.
And that's what's up with Sacramento.
