NV Taxation Dept. Warns Of Possible Mold And Yeast In Marijuana

The Nevada Department of Taxation has issued a health and safety notice advising consumers and patients to avoid consuming some marijuana products that failed secondary yeast and mold testing.

Additional samples of the affected cannabis are being sent for confirmation testing at another laboratory. 

While the results are pending, the Department is advising consumers who have purchased the affected marijuana to avoid consuming it until the results of the confirmation testing are received by the Department, especially people with suppressed immune systems or who are susceptible to the presence of yeast or mold.
