EPA Blocks Cannabis Pesticides

Donald Trump and Scott Pruitt don’t appear to like government oversight, unless you ask them about cannabis.  Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the Trump administration, sent letters to four states in June to inform them that the EPA intended to disapprove their registrations for four cannabis pesticides.

Cannabiz Journal believes that to paraphrase the letter would do an injustice to our readers so it is duplicated here in its entirety.
