stonies2Salem, Ore. – The Oregon Health Authority said marijuana products sold at three medical marijuana dispensaries in North Bend, Salem, and Eugene contain high levels of pesticides.

Officials said two of the shops–identified as Stonies in North Bend and Green-Way Medicinal in Salem–sold two strains of marijuana flower that contained levels of pipeonyl butoxide that are higher than permitted. The flowers were sold under the names of Pleeze (batch number G6J0039-02) and Dryzl (batch number G6J0039-01). The sales occurred between October 16th and 25th to around 340 customers.

According to OHA, the third dispensary, Flowr of Lyfe in Eugene, sold one strain of marijuana flower that contained the pesticide spinosad at levels of levels exceeding regulation. The flower was sold as Dutch Treat (batch number G6J0018-01). The sales occurred between October 15th and October 26th to about 30 customers.

Any customers who purchased these products should check the label and immediately return any tainted products to the dispensaries where they were purchased or dispose of them in a responsible manner.

The identity of the growers is being kept confidential in accordance with Oregon law.
