OHA Suspends Mold Test On Marijuana

(Portland, OR) -- The Oregon Health Authority has suspended a rule that recreational and medical marijuana be tested for a mold that can be hazardous to humans. Aspergillus normally isn't a problem for healthy people, but people with weakened immune systems can develop lung infections. OHA is suspending the rule because of a court decision in a case backed by marijuana producers. OHA will continue to test for heavy metals and other contaminants.
