The Arizona Legislature passed SB1494 on May 27. The expense is now headed to Guv Doug Ducey’s desk.
With his signature it will become law. SB1494 would require the Arizona Department of Health Providers (ADHS) to create requirements for third-party laboratories to test medical cannabis grown in the state for contaminates and toxic substances such as mold, pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides.
Under the costs, independent third-party testing labs would deal with a state application cost of approximately $5,000 and a renewal cost of up to $1,000 to operate.
Required medical marijuana testing will start on June 1, 2020, if Guv Ducey indications the costs.
Presently, lots of Arizona dispensaries and farmer willingly choose to test their medical marijuana for toxins. However, SB1494 would require all organisation test. And any marijuana discovered to consist of toxic substances would have to be damaged.
