Medical Marijuana Operator Is Shut Down By The State Over Pesticide Use

Headlines Science

As per the reports, State Health regulators have ordered to close the dispensaries with a medical marijuana operator, Triple M, in Plymouth and Mashpee after using pesticides on plants on its own cultivation faculty in Plymouth. Last week, Triple M was ordered to immediately stop promoting the medical marijuana products by the State Department Of Public Health and to stop its inventory as well, as the marijuana products which are harvested by the company can cause a serious or immediate threat to public’s safety, health or welfare.

A spokeswoman of the agency has recently given a statement that the sale of all medical marijuana products are ordered to be suspended immediately by the dispensary until further notice. She also added that they have referred this case to the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources. This year, Triple M happens to be the second medical marijuana operator which has been shut down by the state.

Triple M said that they have only used pyrethrins known to be a natural compound and some chemicals, derived from the chrysanthemum flowers. Triple M has used natural pesticides which were approved in all 50 states for use on cannabis in Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Ohio, Illinois and Colorado. In a statement given by the firm they said that the pesticides were used only during the early stages of cultivation by Triple M and never used on the flower buds in September 2018. They also stated that, they have always placed patient’s safety first and will continue to do that so. After the affected crops were destroyed, Good Chemistry was permitted to reopen and to revise its growing procedures. The Department Of Public Health, DPH, has also ordered the dispensary operated by Apothca in Lynn and Arlington for the medical marijuana firm to stop the sale of some particular products which are CBD infused.
