DENVER β€” The Colorado Department of Revenue, in conjunction with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, is issuing a health and safety advisory due to the identification of potentially unsafe levels of elemental impurities (lead) on pre-rolled retail marijuana produced by JEM Dutch Acres, LLC (DBA Earls).

The CDPHE and DOR deem it a threat to public health and safety when marijuana is found to have elemental impurities (lead) levels above the acceptable limits established in Colorado Marijuana Rule 4‐115.

Based on inventory tracking system data, the pre-rolled retail marijuana was sold between Nov. 26, 2021, and Jan. 3, 2022, by JEM Dutch Acres LLC Retail Marijuana Store (402R-00108), located at 115 Harrison Avenue in Leadville, Colorado.

Consumers who have these affected products in their possession should destroy them or return them to the retail store from which they were purchased for proper disposal. Consumers who experience adverse health effects from consuming the product should seek medical attention immediately and report the event to the Marijuana Enforcement Division by submitting a MED Reporting Form.

All affected marijuana should have a label affixed to the container that, at a minimum, indicates the license number of the retail marijuana business that manufactured the pre-roll marijuana product and the batch number. Consumers should check the label of their pre-roll marijuana for the following license number, batch number, and product name.
