Investigation of marijuana lab testing by Nevada regulators
Nevada state launched an investigation into multiple cannabis testing labs after contaminated marijuana batches created 2 health advisories.
After discovering doctored THC levels by cannabis laboratories but also products with very high levels of yeast and mold being sold in dispensaries, the Department of Taxation started the investigation.
Officials said that marijuana products MUST be tested by licensed laboratories for potency, yeast, mold, pesticides, heavy metals and other toxins before ever being sold in dispensaries.
It was mentioned that products from the same cultivators and distributors were tainted and discovered being sold between July 10 and Aug. 28 at Acres Medical, an Apothecary Shoppe, and Blackjack Collective.
Officials warned that mold exposure can lead to stuffy nose, wheezing and itchy eyes or skin.
