Both state and federal law require that pesticides be applied according to label directions. As part of the directions for use, pesticide labels will specify the particular crops and/or sites to which they can be applied. Depending on the particular pesticide, the crops/sites listed on the label can be expressed very specifically (e.g., “wheat”), or more generally (e.g., “grain crops”). While a pesticide with a label that specifies “wheat” can only be applied to wheat, a pesticide that lists “grain crops” on the label can be applied to wheat, barley, oats, rye, etc. In determining which pesticides, if any, might be used legally on marijuana, the WSDA asked the EPA if marijuana might fit into any general crop groups, such as herbs, spices or vegetable gardens. EPA’s current position is that marijuana is not an herb, a spice or a vegetable. EPA considers marijuana to be a controlled substance, and has indicated that marijuana is not listed as a crop/site on any pesticide label. However, EPA does concede that, depending on actual label language, pesticides may be legally used on marijuana under certain other very general types of crops/sites when there is an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. Pesticide active ingredients that do not have any labeled uses on food crops include the plant growth regulators daminozide and paclobutrazol. These active ingredients cannot be used on marijuana grown in Washington, since an exemption from tolerance has not been established by the EPA.
