Washington state updates list of allowable pesticides

Washington state has updated its list of allowable pesticides for the cannabis industry. A release from the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board is below:


To:                  Marijuana Industry Members
From:             WSLCB
Subject:          Updated List of Pesticides Allowed for Use on Marijuana

The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) has recently updated the list of pesticides that are allowed for use in marijuana production in Washington State, based on criteria previously established by WSDA.

WSDA has added 12 pesticides to the list of allowable products, and removed two pesticides because the registration for distribution in Washington was voluntarily cancelled, or because the revised label was no longer consistent with WSDA criteria.

Pesticides containing one new active ingredient (Complex polymeric polyhydroxy acids) were added to the list. Several of the pesticides that were added to the list contain active ingredients that were already allowed for use in marijuana production.

Please check your stock of pesticides against the list to ensure that you are using an allowed product. Marijuana growers can continue to use any existing stocks of the two pesticides that were removed from the list, but no new product can be purchased.
