Potentially unsafe pesticide residue on medical marijuana

November 21, 2018 – In accordance with the Governor’s Executive Order (D 2015-015), the

Colorado Department of Revenue (“DOR”), in conjunction with the Colorado Department of

Agriculture (“CDA”) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (“CDPHE”),

are issuing an immediate health and safety advisory due to the identification of potentially unsafe

pesticide residues on medical marijuana plant material and marijuana products produced from

marijuana cultivated by Colorado Wellness Centers LLC dba Lush. CDPHE and DOR deem it a

threat to public health and safety when pesticides that are not on the list of approved pesticides

for marijuana use as determined by CDA are applied in a manner inconsistent with the pesticide’s

label. CDA confirmed the presence of the Off-Label Pesticides, Pyriproxyfen, in the product

samples tested.

Affected products include marijuana flower, trim, concentrates, and infusedproducts.

Consumers who have these affected products in their possession should return them to

the medical center from which they were purchased so they can be properly disposed of.

All affected marijuana has a label affixed to the container that at a minimum indicates the

license number of the medical marijuana business that cultivated the marijuana. Consumers

should check the label of their medical marijuana for the following license numbers and

harvest batch numbers:

Medical Optional Premises Cultivation License 403-00080 and/or Medical Marijuana Center

License 402-00059
