Xzibit Hit With Class Action Lawsuit for Allegedly Promoting Pesticide Laced Marijuana
According to the lawsuit, Ignacio Lee bought Brass Knuckles branded THC Concentrate Vape Cartridges in Candy Apple and Sour Diesel, prompted to make the purchase after Xzibit promoted the brand on his Instagram.
Lee says he started using the product in July 2016 and in 2017 started experiencing fatigue, headache, nausea, chest pains, shortness of breath, wheezing and difficulty breathing. After he stopped using the marijuana product in August, the symptoms went away.
According to documents, Lee had someone conduct an independent lab test on the product, which he says revealed detectable levels of pesticides.
Lee's suit is a class action on behalf of all the people who smoked the strain in question. Specifically, he wants financial compensation and an order prohibiting Xzibit and others from marketing the product as contaminant free.
On his Instagram, Xzibit has previously marketed the product as "COMPLETELY pesticide AND contaminate FREE."
