Citing a “zero-tolerance policy,” Nevada regulators have suspended the licenses of four of the state’s nine testing labs since July.
The agency most recently suspended the license of Las Vegas-based Digipath Labs on Jan. 19.
Suspensions previously were handed down to Las Vegas-based G3 Labs and RSR Analytical Laboratories as well as Certified Ag Lab in Sparks. RSR and Certified’s licenses have been reinstated.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Nevada law mandates that marijuana businesses test all products through an independent lab before selling to customers.
- No licenses for retail stores, growers or processors have been suspended since the tax department began regulating the marijuana program.
- Digipath said in statement that it plans to submit details to the tax department on how it will correct its operations to get its license back.
- The company drew the ire of regulators last June when it sent an email promoting a third-party event that paired marijuana with food. After the event was canceled, Digipath avoided punishment by donating $50,000 to a medical study on substance abuse.
