The environment surrounding the regulation of medical and adult use cannabis is rapidly evolving. Many states and state laboratories are collecting information regarding the quality of products available for legal sale to assist patients and consumers in making informed decisions and to ensure the products sold meet the state standards for contaminants.

To assist states in understanding the diversity of cannabis programs and efforts across the country, APHL is collecting jurisdiction-specific information to provide a snap shot of activities in each state.
