Dr. Chao-Hsiung Tung, the lab director for a marijuana lab that is suspended by the state, resigned from the Clark County Green Ribbon Advisory Panel this month, the Review-Journal has learned.

Tung resigned from the panel on Sept. 7, according to county spokesman Dan Kulin. The Green Ribbon Panel acts as a recommending committee for the Clark County Commission on issues relating to marijuana and legalization.

Tung is the lab director and chief science officer for G3 Labs LLC, which had its licensed suspended on Aug. 24 by the Nevada Tax Department. The department has not said why the lab was suspended, and only that the lab was out of compliance.

The Nevada Department of Agriculture tested marijuana samples from the lab but determined that no product recalls will be necessary.
