How about the ever-growing list of pesticide regulations? New pesticides are being added to the ‘naughty’ list each and every day!

We will need to be able to remediate ‘dirty’ oils of more and more pesticides (for medicinal and/or adult-use markets).

@Conor we are actively building a database that lists all the naughty and nice pesticides, along with what pests and diseases they help solve. Do you have any favorite resources we can source for our database?
