HALIFAX – Wagners is spearheading a class action lawsuit against two medical marijuana producers, Canopy Growth and Organigram.
In late December there was a recall of Organigram’s products after five lots of cannabis tested positive for the presence of pesticides. canopy growth recalled it’s product because small amounts of a fungicide were discovered.
Lawyer Ray Wagner says the number of complaints they received is quite high, and has even resulted in some serious health concerns.
“Well over 100 at this point in time,” said Wagner. “It’s quite significant in terms of people’s concern. We’re hearing some stories from a number of individuals and in one particular case where she fell ill.”
Wagner says he is unsure of how the marijuana came in contact with the pesticides, and says the soil may have been the cause.
They have not filed the suit as of yet, but he says the suit could be filed as early as this week.
