A new public health and safety advisory related to tainted marijuana has been issued by the Nevada Department of Taxation.

The advisory was issued Dec. 27. Four batches of marijuana failed secondary microbial testing conducted by CANNEX Nevada LLC. The department is asking consumers and patients to avoid the affect products.

  • Island OG #3 (failed mold and yeast testing)
  • Lemon Meringue (failed mold and yeast testing)
  • THC Bomb (failed Aspergillus flavus testing)
  • Zomnie Kush (failed bile-tolerant gram-negative bacteria and total coliforms testing)

The department believes the tainted products were sold between Oct. 5 and Dec. 27 at the following locations:

  • Nevada Wellness Center, 3200 S. Valley View Blvd.
  • Nevada Holistic Medicine/MMJ America, 4660 S. Decatur Blvd.
  • Deep Roots Medical/Deep Roots Harvest, 195 Willis Carrier Canyon, Mesquite
  • Paradise Wellness Center/Las Vegas Releaf, 2244 Paradise Road
  • GTI Nevada/Rise, 35 Clearview Drive, Suite 119, Carson City
  • Cheyenne Medical/Thrive Cannabis Marketplace, 2755 W. Cheyenne Ave. Ste. 103, North Las Vegas

The affected marijuana was cultivated by Nevada Group Wellness LLV, ACC Enterprises ACC, and Integral Cultivation LLC. It was harvested between March and October 2019.

No illnesses have been reported because of the tainted marijuana at this time, according to the department. Although everyone should avoid the listed products, it's especially important that those with suppressed immune systems do so.

There is no reason to believe that the dispensaries or cultivators had any knowledge that the products exceeded allowable limits. CANNEX Nevada LLC was closed immediately on Dec. 27.
