Dill Interviewed in Press Herald Article on Pesticides, Medical Marijuana

The Portland Press Herald spoke with James Dill, a pest management specialist with the University of Maine’s Cooperative Extension, for an article about the use of pesticides on medicinal marijuana. Dill said he has been asked for tips on how to control pests in marijuana growing operations and says he can’t recommend more than spraying them with water because he is concerned about pesticides’ potential effects on smokers’ lungs.
