In an investigative report published December 10, the Chicago Sun-Times’ commissioned lab tests found, “contaminants like mold and yeast at levels that exceed state safety standards” in pre-rolls sold in Illinois.
In a response in a follow up article, Illinois cannabis cultivators responded by basically stating that their pre-rolls had passed testing before packaging and the contaminants occurred afterwards.
January 28, Rep. Jawaharial Williams filed with the House of Representatives Clerk’s Office an amendment to the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act that “Provides that a dispensing organization that sells or offers for sale a pre-rolled joint must stamp the pre-rolled joint with the month, day, and year that it was rolled and packaged for retail sale.”
The first reading of the amendment took place January 31 and then it was referred to the Rules Committee. The last action taken was on February 9 when the amendment was assigned to Executive Committee.
