Quality control: Testing labs say consistency is needed

Medical marijuana laboratories in the state pave their own practices in a fledgling industry

In Pennsylvania, four laboratories are often the last line of defense between the medical marijuana manufacturer and the consumer. And those labs’ role in public safety is becoming more apparent in light of the rise in lung-injury cases connected to the use of cannabis-based products in e-cigarette and vaping products. As of October 15, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that cases of lung injury among vape and e-cigarette users had killed 33 people and injured 1,479.
