Agenda

Protecting Consumer Health: The Need for More Stringent Lab Testing Rules

  • Milan Patel, CEO, PathogenDx

In this session, Milan Patel discusses:

  • The current problems with testing in the cannabis industry.  (Loose regulation and enforcement, allowing operators without scruples to endanger consumers, E.G. increasing moisture to products to increase weight, while also increasing risk of mold.
  • Potential solutions to this problem. (Bring more attention to the problem, states need to follow CGMP for recreational markets, companies should test at every step of the supply chain)
  • Why this matters (beyond protecting consumers, this will help protect the reputation of the industry and individual companies within it.)

TechTalk: Millipore Sigma

  • Maria Nelson, Technical Consultant, AOAC International
