Four Marijuana Testing Labs Had Licenses Suspended

Four of Nevada’s nine cannabis testing facilities have had their licenses suspended in the past five months.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports state inspectors discovered the labs were not following proper procedures set out in the state’s marijuana regulations.

The labs are tasked with screening marijuana samples for toxic metals, mold, and pesticides. They also verify the potency of marijuana products.

If a sample passes all screenings, the product can go on to be sold at dispensaries. If it fails, the cultivator or producer must dispose of the entire batch.

While regulators have cracked down on the testing labs, they have not suspended any retail or cultivation licenses.
