This is yet another of the many market disruptions which have come to the Oregon weed market since recreational legalization. If you're in the business in state thats behind OR on legalization then study these and the similar patterns in other states and you will be able to predict and plan for the future in your own locales. The patterns are predictable, people never seem to be prepared at the deadline.
I was able to have predicted this one months ago because I lived through so many previous ones.

What an absolute joke. How about all the cancer causing glyphosate (round up) sprayed on all the food plants? Oh no big deal its not reefer. Sounds like more of the good old fashioned american bullshit. And its bad for ya. RIP George Carlin

The problem (as far as I can tell from reading the article) is that there are only 2 labs certified by the state to perform the testing. The labs are not keeping up with the demand at the stores...
I don't think the article even mentioned the rate at which products were failing the pesticide testing....
Although maybe I missed it iam illiterate

The other side to this is the old school growers who knew their game got ran out. I mean the ones who for instance know how to keep bugs at bay organically. The new money coming in is building big and when your big and new then have a problem it's a big one. Solution is for them to hit them with pesticides. I'm hearing nothing is getting tested and to market yet I see high quality everywhere grown right. It's just there are many that didn't have the deep pockets to jump into rec. Or their county still banned it. The med growers know their stuff but recently got kicked to the curb. It's your big money ops and newbs in lab coats that think they're all that, having the issues. Yet that fine quality clean product is sitting still or being flipped dirt cheap out of desperation. Huge loss to the state in projected taxes. They forget it was mostly the med growers who got them this far.

I just moved to Southeast Oregon from Ohio (tired of fighting the man, still fighting a case now). This is all very interesting.

I started working for a Collective and was told that we have "SuperBugs" here and that we aren't allowed to spray anything strong. At the same time I was told that the labs can't pick up any sprays after 45 days in the plant.

SO I don't know what to do, except grow healthy plants and pray.

Here's an idea from your favorite guru:

How about you stop concerning yourself with people's on-line personas, and instead learn how to grow without spraying shit on your plants?



Maybe you'll stop feeling attacked when the subject of shitty weed comes up again.

you sound bitter.

this is about decent growers with good clean product who can't sell it because of regulatory bottlenecks, and the consumers who find their options limited, and prices inflated. This violates free market principles, and as other people mentioned, is not standard procedure with any other crop.

hope they figure it out asap. I'm sure California can look forward to scenarios like this or worse with the passage of prop 64 and MMRSA
