The Arizona Legislature handed SB1494 on Could 27. The invoice is now headed to Governor Doug Ducey’s desk. Together with his signature it’ll change into legislation.
SB1494 would require the Arizona Division of Well being Companies (ADHS) to create requirements for third-party labs to check medical marijuana grown within the state for contaminates and toxins similar to mildew, pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides.
Beneath the invoice, unbiased third-party testing labs would face a state utility price of as much as $5,000 and a renewal price of as much as $1,000 to function.
Required medical marijuana testing will start on June 1, 2020, if Governor Ducey indicators the invoice.
At the moment, many Arizona dispensaries and cultivator voluntarily select to check their medical marijuana for toxins. Nevertheless, SB1494 would require all enterprise check. And any marijuana discovered to include toxins must be destroyed.
