The recall is a clear example of how legal weed regulations help cannabis consumers. - From MERRY JANE
According to the Portland Tribune, it was Buds 4 U that contacted the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) after the pot shop tested a delivery of the strain Blue Magoo and found high pyrethin levels.
The levels exceeded the state’s legal limit, prompting the dispensary to call in the OLCC.
The bud was grown by licensed recreational cannabis cultivators Emerald Wave Estate based out of Creswell, Oregon.
The pesticide levels were supposed to be caught on the growers end, but a break in protocol occurred when Cascade Cannabis Distribution, a wholesaler out of Eugene, shipped the batch to the Mapleton retailer before the pesticide test results were punched into the Oregon cannabis tracking system.
The Blue Magoo recall, while unfortunate for those involved, marks an important landmark for Oregon’s recreational cannabis market, and represents a significant move towards industry legitimacy.
