Affygility Solutions is pleased to announce that its occupational exposure limit monograph is now available for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, the principal psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
"With the recent legalization of recreational marijuana use in both Colorado and Washington, and the expected expansion of its legal use in other states, we believe that occupational exposure to the active ingredient in marijuana will become an emerging issue of concern," said Dean M. Calhoun, President and CEO of Affygility Solutions. "Currently, there are no state or federal occupational exposure standards to protect workers in this industry from the adverse effects of the inhalation of THC during growing, harvesting, or processing activities."
The occupational exposure limit monograph for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is available for purchase and instant download as an OEL Fastrac monograph. For monograph details, visit oelfastrac.com/tetrahydrocannabinol.html.
