They Could Send Out Marijuana Products to Laboratories for Testing
Video Transcribed: Today we are continuing with the question of what the secret shopper does and how they affect dispensaries. I am Ope Adegbuyi, a Tulsa medical marijuana business attorney.
The secret shopper shall deliver the medical marijuana products or medical marijuana to a quality assurance laboratory for homogenization. Once the samples have been homogenized, the sample shall be delivered to four randomly selected licensed medical marijuana testing laboratories for compliance testing, which shall include the testing of pesticides, heavy metals, microbials, residual solvents for extracted products, and potency.
One sample shall be kept by the authority in reserve. If the medical marijuana or medical marijuana products were previously tested with available results from a licensed medical marijuana testing laboratory, that testing laboratory shall be one of the four licensed medical marijuana testing laboratories chosen by the authority.
For the avoidance of doubt, neither the licensed medical marijuana dispensary nor the licensed medical marijuana testing laboratory shall be told that the business entity is selling medical marijuana or medical marijuana products to a secret shopper or testing samples submitted by a secret shopper employed by the authority and posing as a medical marijuana patient.”
So, basically, it’s saying that the secret shopper, basically, is going to come into the shop discretely to purchase these products and then send those products out to testing laboratories to test for any heavy metal, microbials, or residual solvents for extracted products.
Then, there’ll be four different laboratories that do the testing, and one sample is going to be kept with the OMMA in case there are any discrepancies or anything going on. So, we’re going to keep continuing with the question of the secret shopper and how it affects dispensaries in my next video.
