Aside from a (likely temporary) license suspension, the LCB appears satisfied with how they are handling the result of PEAK Analytic’s recent audit.
They responded to me this morning regarding their position that no recall of PEAK-tested product is necessary. The risk to consumers is something that they either do not recognize or that does not rise to the threshold they view as necessary for action protective of Washington’s consumers of State-legal Cannabis.
If find this unfortunate and worrisome. Oh well, at least I tried.
Here is the response from their Communications Person – Brian Smith.
I believe he was responding to a note I sent to all LCB staff earlier this morning urging them to get their leadership to act. Perhaps one or more of them will take my concerns and run with them.
In the meanwhile, this is a disappointing situation. TGIF!
I tried with this branch of Government. Perhaps some others may take an interest?
Have a wonderful weekend …. and, PLEASE, ask to see the Certificate of Analysis (COA) the next time you consider buying a product. If it was tested by PEAK, do as you see fit for yourself and anyone you might be legally sharing your purchase with.
