JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services found no evidence that recently purchased medical marijuana was tainted with mold.


A report came in over the weekend that moldy medical marijuana was sold at a St. Louis area dispensary.

“We appreciate the cooperation of the facilities in this investigation,” said Lyndall Fraker, director of the DHSS Section for Medical Marijuana Regulation. “Their quick action and willingness to do whatever it takes to ensure patient safety is encouraging.”

According to a release, the related product batch was retested, and the DHSS found no evidence that the product batch presents a health and safety concern.

“We encourage all patients to alert us to any concerns they have about any product they purchase. If there are concerns, we would advise that they do not consume any of the product until the situation can be properly investigated,” said Fraker.

On Tuesday evening, more than 200 patients who purchased the plant were notified. No other instance of mold has been reported.
