Globe says Aurora to release tests of its pot products

The Globe and Mail reports in its Thursday edition that with the medical-marijuana industry caught in a tainted-cannabis scare which Health Canada has yet to fully confront, one company has struck out on its own to devise a solution to the controversy. The Globe's Grant Robertson writes that Aurora Cannabis, one of 38 federally licensed producers of medical cannabis, is expected to announce today that it is unveiling the industry's strictest consumer safety regime, testing all of its products for contaminants at a federally accredited lab, then making those certified test results public. The program, which will test for moulds, bacteria, aflatoxins, heavy metals and 51 pesticides, including banned substances such as myclobutanil, goes beyond Health Canada requirements, and exceeds the standards used by the rest of the sector by making the information public. Some federally licensed companies in Canada's medical-marijuana sector test for contaminants, but do not make the data available for consumers to see. Others do not test at all for substances such as dangerous pesticides, because Health Canada does not require it. Aurora wants Cannabis Canada Association members to follow its lead.
