Evan Mascagni '11, a Research Assistant at the California Anti-SLAPP Project (CASP), published an article at PolicyMic on pesticide contamination of cannabis. 

Mascagni writes, "While it is possible to at the least wash off non-organic fruits and vegetables to remove some pesticide residue before consumption, there is no way to wash the pesticides off a cannabis flower or bud. As a result, when marijuana is inhaled or ingested for the effects of its natural chemical compound, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), additional unknown chemical residues enter one’s system as well."
