Industry: TSCA 'high-priority' designation must not carry risk presumption
Industry groups throughout the supply chain have called on the US EPA to provide routine communication to the public that a high-priority designation under TSCA does not equate to a finding on that substance’s risk.

The comments come in response to the EPA’s ‘working approach’ for prioritising substances for risk evaluation, which lays out both a short- and long-term plan.

And while many of the comments focused on the agency’s plans to ‘bin’ substances on the TSCA inventory, others flagged up concerns around public perception of the prioritisation process.

The US Chamber of Commerce, for example, called on the EPA to "consistently communicate that the agency’s selection of candidate chemicals for possible review are not determinations of risk or safety."

And the Downstream Users Coalition – representing trade groups covering paper, plastic, toys, tyres and automotive equipment – agreed that its member companies and the public will benefit from such messages.

In the light of this, the coalition called for "proactive procedures to help to reduce concerns from consumers and the potential for adverse commercial effects related to premature product deselection or substitution decisions."

Cold Discovery — Real Life
"In Understanding Media, Marshall McLuhan argues that every medium contains another pre-existing medium as its content: Speech is the content of writing, while writing is the content of print. Print, along with music and video, has become the content of another medium, the internet and its digital formats. Movies and television, in the aggregate, have become the content of Netflix, so when we watch video on Netflix, we are watching “movies and television” at a less differentiated level of abstraction."

Retractable Wall Stanchions
During an emergency hazard cones were to be placed at the entry and exit points outside a Chemistry Room to divert pedestrian traffic. During an actual emergency pedestrians would have time to enter the potentially contaminated hallway while cones were being retrieved. Wall Mounted Retractable Stanchions were proposed to more quickly divert pedestrian traffic and minimize potential exposure. The stanchions were installed strategically in appropriate areas so they can now be pulled out and positioned quickly.

As medical dispensary struggled with mold, regulation was nonexistent
For years, Vermont’s largest medical cannabis business has struggled with mold infestations on its cannabis plants, but the potential consequences for thousands of patients remain unknown, as state quality control regulations in the industry don’t exist.

According to five former employees of Champlain Valley Dispensary (CVD), which serves patients with conditions ranging from cancer to auto-immune disorders, mold issues have been a frequent problem and management has been slow to address the infestations until employees repeatedly urged them to do so.

Employees said that in some cases, the company declined to dispose of moldy cannabis, and extracted tetrahydrocannabinol from it. THC, the psychoactive chemical in the plant, is used in cannabis edibles, smokable oils and other products.

The former employees spoke to VTDigger on the condition of anonymity, fearing reprisal from the dispensary. Most employees signed non-disclosure agreements with the company as a condition of employment. None of the five who were interviewed currently works in Vermont’s medical cannabis industry.

Police: Man trying to cook meth triggered hazmat response
RICHMOND, R.I. (WPRI) - A Richmond man was arrested Friday night after police and a hazmat team were called to a home off Richmond Townhouse Road.

The man, who has not been identified, was attempting to cook meth in the kitchen, according to police.

Police said they were contacted just after 6 p.m. Friday by the man's girlfriend, who sought to file a domestic assault and battery complaint against the man.

The woman told police it was the result of an argument after she had arrived home to find her boyfriend trying to make a small amount of meth using cold medicine and other ingredients.

Believing there may have been dangerous chemicals inside the home, police called in the town's fire department and a hazmat team from the R.I. Department of Environmental Management to secure the scene.
