It seems that the talk of the cannabis industry right now is pesticides being used by growing operation in Colorado. Over the past few years, the marijuana industry has gone fairly unregulated on how businesses can grow their plants and what pesticides can and cannot be used, due mostly from industry pressure. However, this may be coming to an end as the first class action lawsuit is presented within the United States’ cannabis industry.

Brandon Flores and Brandie Lorrabee, both medical marijuana patients in the state of Colorado, are suing LivWell for their use of dangerous pesticides on their crops. LivWell is a large dispensary chain with 9 stores across the Denver area, and uses the pesticide Eagle 20 on their crops. While Eagle 20 is safe to use on crops like fruit, they are not allowed to be used on crops like tobacco due to the hydrogen cyanide gas they can produce, which is extremely toxic.

The lawsuit aims to end the use of this dangerous pesticide in growing operations, and also seeks compensation for health damages done because of the use of Eagle 20.
