Q:  Who is responsible for testing the products?
A:  There is no specific licensee that is responsible for the products to be tested, however all items must be tested prior to being sold to the public. Please see the Oregon Health Authority administrative rules at http://www.oregon.gov/oha/mmj/Pages/rules.aspx for more information. 
Q:  My useable marijuana failed pesticide testing, do I destroy the products?
A:  Do not destroy any marijuana items that have failed pesticide testing until we provide more instruction.  Those items must be securely stored on the licensed premises and labeled accordingly so it can be clearly identified as failed pesticide products.  We will contact all licenses directly with instructions on how to destroy those items in the near future, however until that time, those items should not be destroyed.
