    Default First medicinal pot recall

    Good thing it's safer than if we do it. It's also a interesting thing they can use medicinal patients to test their flawed/amateur grows, I thought testing prevented this.

    This B.C. bud's not for you. Nor should it be for anyone, according to the pot producers who are now asking customers to ditch a batch of cannabis sold as "purple kush," following a Health Canada inspection.

    The voluntary recall is for a shipment labelled PK-10-20-13. In an advisory, Health Canada said it found "issues with the company's production practices" that could affect the product.

    It's believed to be the first-ever marijuana recall announced by the federal health agency.

    The shipment of medical marijuana in question was produced by Greenleaf Medicinals out of Nanaimo, B.C.

    Greenleaf has informed Health Canada the company is "working with other licensed producers to find a supply of marijuana for the impacted clients."

    Consumers were being asked to discontinue use, though anyone who has already used the product is not in danger, according to Health Canada.

    The health agency's recall notice was posted online on April 18, two days before Sunday's annual "4/20" day, which celebrates cannabis culture.

    Health Canada reminded the public that dried marijuana is not an approved drug or medicine in Canada, and that use and possession of marijuana is illegal unless authorized by a medical professional.

    They should be letting people know what the issue is so they can decide for themselves whether it's safe or not. Damned if I'd take someone's advice to "not worry" about using it if there's a recall of the product! I would want to know what kind of shit they tried to pull on me, or I'd never deal with them again!
    I do not fail -- I succeed at finding out what does not work.

    The government will put forward the case that because this was an LP the problem was identified and dealt with quickly. This will suggest that if an LP with QC has problems, the home grow would be even more likely to have issues. They will not point out that we don't market our meds.
    No specific facts, curious. Sounds Harperish to me.
