Nevada suspends Las Vegas marijuana testing lab’s license

A testing lab in Las Vegas has been temporarily shut down, a first for the state’s new recreational marijuana program.

No reason has been given for the Department of Taxation’s decision to suspend G3 Labs’ business license on Aug. 24, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

A department spokeswoman indicated G3 Labs wasn’t in compliance but said no marijuana it had tested needed to be recalled, according to the newspaper.

Nevada’s labs test cannabis for toxic metals, pesticides and fungi and also to establish potency.

G3’s lab director, Dr. Chao-Hsiung Tung, is a member of Nevada’s Independent Laboratory Advisory Committee. The panel is aware of the suspension, but his standing with the committee is unclear, the Review-Journal reported.
