The legal cannabis industry across the country is booming and a tremendous amount of money rides on healthy crops.  But, unlike others in the agricultural industry, there is not a clear understanding of what is safe for workers and consumers regarding exposure to pesticides and fungicides.  According to a 2013 study in the Journal of Toxicology, up to 69.5 percent of pesticides on a cannabis bud can transfer into a smoker's lungs.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that regulates pesticides used on other crops, has not approved any pesticides for use on cannabis because the plant remains illegal at the federal level.  Without proper testing and regulations from state and federal agencies, the public's health is at risk.  

   

Come to the September New Mexico PBS Science Cafe and view a clip of a PBS program and then join in a discussion with Leslie McAhren, MPH, MFA, DrPH candidate.  She will discuss the exposure and health effects of pesticides in the cultivation of cannabis. 

 

Admission to the café is free, but a reservation is required.  For questions, contact Rose Poston at 277-2396 or rposton@nmpbs.org.  Seats are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

Be more curious…be more amazed..come to the New Mexico PBS Science Café.
