Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper issued an executive order along with a health and safety advisory Wednesday warning people not to use marijuana cultivated by Colorado Wellness Centers because the company used unapproved pesticides.
The company, which also does business as Lush, allegedly used off-label pesticides called pyriproxyfen while cultivating marijuana, according to the Wednesday afternoon bulletin, according to a joint advisory by the Colorado Department of Agriculture and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
Affected products include marijuana flower, trim, concentrates, and infused products, the advisory says.
