US (NV): Cannabis testing company may lose license for falsely inflating THC levels

A Las Vegas-based facility that intentionally manipulated cannabis testing results will likely face disciplinary action after state regulators denied the company’s motion to dismiss the action Tuesday, the 27th of September.

The Cannabis Compliance Board voted unanimously to reject Lettucetest LLC’s motion to dismiss disciplinary action against the company that could see it lose a cannabis business license and be barred from operating in the industry for ten years.

The facility, formerly known as Cannex Nevada LLC, first faced a complaint from the board in January 2021, which listed more than a dozen violations found by state inspectors. The complaint also detailed instances where the company intentionally passed samples tainted by microbial contaminants and falsely inflated THC levels, which increases the value of the product.
