USA – Marijuana contaminated with potentially harmful bacteria allegedly sold at 20 unlicensed NYC stores


Three trade groups for the medical marijuana industry are warning buyers about cannabis sold in New York City.

A survey conducted by the New York Medical Marijuana Cannabis Industry Association claims it found tainted marijuana at 20 unlicensed businesses in the city.

They say many of them were contaminated with E. coli, salmonella, heavy metals, and pesticides. Those contaminants can cause illness and infection in the human body.

75 percent of the businesses said their product came from California or the West Coast, the survey detailed.

The trade groups estimate that there are likely tens of thousands of illegal marijuana businesses operating in NYC.
