Colorado Mulls Mandatory Medical Marijuana Testing

Recreational pot sold in Colorado must be tested for pesticides and contaminants such as mold and mildew. Oddly, the requirement doesn't apply to medical marijuana sold to people with debilitating conditions - but a bill up for its first test in the state Senate Wednesday would change that.

The head-scratching situation of requiring testing of recreational pot but not medical pot is a holdover from older regulations. When the medical regulations were written in 2010, Colorado had very few testing facilities.

State regulators have asked lawmakers to update the regulations so that testing is required of medical pot. But an earlier attempt to do so was discarded amid concerns about whether existing labs could handle the additional demand.
