A great deal about Colorado marijuana pesticides have been in the news recently due to a large marijuana chain being sued by two consumers for the use of pesticides on the products they purchased. The pesticides used on the products that were purchased is known as “Eagle-20”; a fungicide that contains the ingredient myclobutinal that when heated breaks down and releases a poison known as hydrogen cyanide. “Eagle-20” is not on the list of approved Colorado marijuana pesticides. According to The Colorado Department of Agriculture “Eagle-20” is banned from use on all tobacco and marijuana products. The use of “Eagle-20” is only approved for use on vegetation that will not be inhaled. The company being sued had 60,000 plants quarantined from the use of “Eagle-20”; the quarantine was lifted when only low levels of chemicals were found. The two consumers are suing the company for what they claim was overpriced cannabis, based on the fact that the pesticide had been used on the plants they purchased. Although the consumers were not harmed from the cannabis they purchased, they stated that they would not have inhaled had they known the product that was previously used on these plants.
