Laboratory: Street-Bought Marijuana 'Unfit for Consumption'

The Gaylord Herald-Times is reporting that the owner of a lab that specializes in testing medical marijuana for contaminants says he's found unacceptable levels of pesticides and other chemicals in marijuana bought off the street.

Lab Tech Dan Tomaski claims that he's found pesticides at a concentration of 60 times what's allowed in commercial spinach in samples obtained from street dealers in Michigan.

Mold, dirt, and suspected insect droppings were also found in the samples, according to Tomaski.

“These are unfit for consumption,” he said.“We published this report to show what some people would be forced back into using if these collectives close,” he said, referring to last month’s court ruling that is forcing the closure of medical marijuana dispensaries in the state. “It’s making it more dangerous for patients. I don’t understand why courts are forcing patients back into that.”
