Many California marijuana products failing safety tests

Between July 1 and August 29, labs tested 10,695 product batches in California.

Almost 20 percent of all the marijuana products tested in California for potency and purity have failed.

The majority of the products that failed tests, however, are not blocked from placement on pot shop shelves.

Now some of these failed tests are a simple case of mislabeling, meaning a company labeled a product as having a potency different than what was actually tested.

While growers argue that the standards are too strict, costly, and inconsistent, some testing experts say the standards don't go far enough to adequately catch fungal contamination that would otherwise be found in routine drug and food testing.

Secondly, about 400 batches of marijuana products failed tests due to unacceptable levels of pesticides.

Marijuana company officials say the state is rejecting some pot products after they fall outside the 10 percent margin by tiny amounts.

Cannabis-infused cookies, sweets and tinctures have been hit hardest, with about a third being banned for sale, the Associated Press said.

And, "even if the [testing] lab admits it made an error, there is no way to change those results", Bryce Berryessa told the AP. The association also complained that the testing was costly, noting that small marijuana farms were getting hit with testing fees of up to $10,000. One indicator of that has been that marijuana tax revenue has not come close to reaching the state's projections.

"Mandatory statewide testing is a new thing and it's going to take some time for everything to run smoothly, but on the whole we're pleased with how things are progressing", said Bureau of Cannabis Control spokesman Alex Traverso.
