Colorado Issues Massive Recall of Pesticide-Tainted Marijuana

Colorado state marijuana regulators Thursday announced a recall of a large amount of retail pot grown and allegedly treated with unapproved pesticides by MGI Inc. in Denver, whose cultivation facilities operate under the name Kindman.

MGI owner Ryan Fox said his company “absolutely has not used this pesticide in production,” and is challenging the recall. [Read more at The Denver Post]
