LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Nevada State officials will investigate marijuana testing labs to find out how cannabis with high levels of mold and yeast made it to stores.

The labs are also being investigated for potentially inflating THC levels to make marijuana products look more potent to customers. 

On Monday, the Nevada Department of Taxation issued a second health advisory for marijuana that was sold with high levels of yeast, mold and other bacteria at four Valley dispensaries.

No illnesses have been reported. It's believed that the dispensaries had no knowledge that they were receiving any tainted product.
