In brief: Pesticides

As far as i know, neither "medical" or other marijuana is routinely tested for pesticides -- which could be a realistic concern for people who want to use it.
I saw one news story saying that residues of a pesticide called bifenthrin were found in a sample. This is toxic to mammals who ingest it. It was an isolated example, but if testing is not usually being done, how does anyone really know?
