A cannabis cultivation company in Nevada was fined $565,000 for allegedly failing to tag its plants for the state-mandated seed-to-sale tracking system and operating with expired licenses, among other violations.
The Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board disciplined Green Cross of America for allegedly violating several rules after conducting a routine inspection of the Pahrump-based business in August, Law360 reported.
The company’s cannabis cultivation license was suspended that month after regulators called the operation a “threat to public health and safety.”
The compliance board said in the recent complaint, filed Oct. 26 and obtained by Law360, that:
- Green Cross continued medical and recreational cultivation operations even though its cultivation licenses expired in 2019.
- More than 400 untagged cannabis plants were found at the Green Cross facility.
- The company’s attorney and a contractor falsely told regulators the facility was not in operation and housed no cannabis.
- During the inspection, regulators found other violations, including security cameras not in use, unlocked rooms in the facility and wires to the alarm system that were cut.
- Only one of the six owners had active marijuana registration cards.
