UPDATE: Xzibit Sued for Allegedly Selling Pesticide-Laced Marijuana
Ignacio Lee claims that he got sick off Xzibit’s strain of THC oil. The lawsuit states that Lee purchased Brass Knuckles branded THC Concentrate Vape Cartridges in Candy Apple and Sour Diesel. The rapper promoted the product on his Instagram, which is what attracted Lee to cop it.
The Pimp My Ride host said on his social media, “Our oil is clean.” In another post he says the product is “COMPLETELY pesticide AND contaminate FREE.”
Lee claims he began using it in July 2016 and in 2017 he began to experience fatigue, headaches, nausea, chest pains, shortness of breath, wheezing and difficulty breathing. Once he stopped smoking it, the symptoms went away. TMZ reports that Lee had an independent lab test the marijuana and it tested positive for pesticide.
Lee is in a class action suit who also smoked the weed. He wants compensation and to stop the marketing of the product as contamination free.

A rep for Brass Knuckles tells us, “We have investigated the allegations asserted in the claim and determined they are frivolous. They do not represent the experience of our loyal customers who love our strains.” The statement continues, “Brass Knuckles adheres to California’s new safety standards which are among the strictest in the country. Our most recent tests confirm the purity of our product.” Xzibit sells toxic s*** … so claims a man who says he got real sick off the rapper’s strain of THC oil.
Ignacio Lee claims in a new lawsuit he bought Brass Knuckles branded THC Concentrate Vape Cartridges in Candy Apple and Sour Diesel. Xzibit promoted the brand on his Instagram, and that’s what attracted Lee to the product.
Xzibit said on his social media, “Our oil is clean.” In another post he says the product is “COMPLETELY pesticide AND contaminate FREE.” Lee says he began using the brand in July 2016, and in 2017 he began experiencing fatigue, headaches, nausea, chest pains, shortness of breath, wheezing and difficulty breathing. He says he stopped using the pot in August and the symptoms went away.
According to the legal docs, obtained by TMZ, he 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 folks who smoked the strain in question. He wants money and an order prohibiting Xzibit and others from marketing the product as contaminant free.
