New York continues making progress in cannabis legalization. By green-lighting emergency lab testing regulations and opening the application process for testing facilities, the New York State Cannabis Control Board (CCB) recently moved closer to launching recreational sales and opening adult-use stores in the state.
In accordance with the above, MMJ testing facilities are enabled to apply and test recreational cannabis products under the new rules. It also requires the establishment of a state reference laboratory for quality control.
Under the emergency regulations, laboratories must be ISO 17025 accredited and use third-party sampling companies to select samples for testing. The regulations, which take effect immediately, are similar to those proposed by the CCB on June 1.
The CCB announced that it will not accept public comments on the rules. However, it will consider comments submitted on the proposed rules in June and make changes accordingly.
