Nevada regulators voted to suspend the adult-use and medical cannabis cultivation and production licenses of NLVG, doing business as Desert Bloom, for not properly tracking its marijuana.

An inspection by Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board agents found untagged or improperly tagged marijuana plants and packages that were not tracked in the state’s traceability system, Metrc, the agency said in a news release.

Agents also found that marijuana that initially failed testing was retested and/or sent to processing with the regulatory agency’s approval.

Further, regulators discovered that the company adjusted the weight of marijuana batches after they had been tested, then sent them on to retailers.

NLVG did not immediately respond to an MJBizDaily request for comment.
