Canada: Third lawsuit over tainted MMJ

A third class-action lawsuit launched Tuesday over tainted medical marijuana raises new questions about Health Canada’s recent conclusion that patients who consumed products containing banned pesticides were unlikely to experience any adverse health consequences.

Those claims, unproven in court, are similar to allegations made in two other proposed class actions already launched over the pesticide problem.

Several of them say they became bedridden, stricken by nausea and suffered bouts of “scary” breathing difficulties, among other symptoms.
