LOS ANGELES (AP) — California marijuana producers are seeing a higher percentage of buds, oils and other products clear strict safety tests.
Testing started in July saw about a 20 percent failure rate after the first two months.
Now it’s down to 14 percent. State and industry officials say that shows businesses are adjusting to the regulated market.

State regulators have asked retailers and distributors to recall batches tested by Sequoia Analytical Labs after July 1.
