Two Colorado stoners have filed a lawsuit against a local Denver dispensary for illegal use of dangerous chemicals in their grow operation, according to stuff.co.nz.

The case stands on the consumption of these pesticides resulting in poor health side effects. Since the recreational use of marijuana is still federally illegal, there are no federal guidelines as to which chemicals should be prohibited.

The dispensary in question, LivWell, is being sued for the use of Eagle 20 EW, a fungicide that can become hazardous when heated.

LivWell insists that customers are not at risk when smoking their inventory, but authorities proceeded to confiscate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of plants earlier this year.

“We have no reason to believe our product is not perfectly safe,” said Dean Heizer, LivWell lawyer.
