The Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board on Tuesday filed four complaints against marijuana companies that could result in one Reno marijuana dispensary losing its license.
The move further ratchets up the state’s compliance squeeze on marijuana companies since the board formally took over regulating the industry in July.
That included one filed against Kynd-Strains LLC, the parent company of Mynt dispensaries in Reno. Mynt has two locations in Reno, and it is unclear which location was the target of the complaint as the address was redacted in the complaint released Tuesday.
According to the complaint, a routine inspection of the dispensary found that the company was not properly utilizing the state’s seed-to-sale tracking system, and noted that eight product line inventories were not in line with the state’s system. It also said that the company did not have a required camera malfunction log, did not have documentation of a semi-annual audit of the facilities’ security measures and allowed an employee to work at the location without a valid agency card.
The CCB’s legal counsel is recommending in the complaint that the board revoke the medical and recreational licenses for the dispensary, and impose $19,000 in penalties. The company would not be able to apply for another dispensary license for five years under the proposed action.
A representative for Kynd-Strains could not be reached Tuesday.
Kynd-Strains, like all the companies that have complaints levied against them by the board, has a chance to contest the complaints by requesting a hearing on the charges.
The board’s push to revoke Kynd-Strains’ dispensary licenses comes about a month after it stripped one of the state’s biggest marijuana companies, CWNevada, of more than a dozen licenses, including its dispensary licenses.
The state is also looking to revoke the licenses for marijuana cultivator Fidelis Holdings
