Key questions related to Hawaii’s Controlled Substances Act (329) and Chapter 11-850 of the Hawaii Administrative Rules with respect to required laboratory testing:

How does law enforcement affect public perception of safety? Is the Department of Health making Cannabis safer? How does testing increase patient safety? Will dispensaries produce safer products?

We could consider the inputs in the tomato sold at the grocer if those tomatoes were tested and if the grocer did not spray anything on the tomato after testing. We do know that tomatoes are in the Nightshade family. The leaves and stalk of the tomato plant are toxic but so are a half-dozen other plants you may already purchase at the grocer.

The fact remains, that when a patient opens a package from a dispensary, contaminants are introduced from breathing on, touching or setting Cannabis on any surface. Do water fountains at public schools contain more or less contaminants than Cannabis grow in the Sun or from a dispensary?
