A Key Step Toward Legal Marijuana

A company that will test marijuana before it is legally sold in Washington has opened a testing lab in Yakima.

Analytical-360,” a Seattle company that currently tests medical marijuana, will begin testing  recreational marijuana.  The examination will check for such factors as amount of THC, (which puts the “high” in pot) along with mold, bacteria, and parasites.

There are some ironies in the opening of the Yakima lab.  The building it’s in was once used to  test hops, before allowing them to be used for making beer.

And the city of Yakima, which has banned the sale of recreational marijuana, says it welcomes the lab.  The facility will track test samples to make sure none are diverted.
