California Proposition 65
January 17, 2020 | Written by GreenSoft Technology, Inc.
2 New Chemicals Added to CA Proposition 65 Substances List
Cannabis (Marijuana) smoke and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) have been added to the CA Proposition 65
Two substances were added to the list of chemicals known to the state of California to cause reproductive toxicity under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (CA Proposition 65).
The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) added the following chemicals effective January 3, 2020:
- Cannabis (marijuana) smoke
- Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC)
Companies affected by California Proposition 65 are required to warn customers of potential exposure to any of the substances on the list of chemicals.
The two new substance additions will have no effect on electronics manufacturers, but GreenSoft monitors all updates to California Proposition 65 and will continue to alert you when chemicals are added to the list of regulated substances.
The last prior addition to the regulated substances list was September 2019.
