The first legal sales of medical marijuana in Missouri occurred over the weekend. N'Bliss has suspended sales of that product and pulled the remaining inventory.

"DHSS has halted sales on all remaining product from the relevant batch. The relevant product batch passed all required testing prior to sale, but additional testing is being done at this time to determine the source of the mold," the release stated. "Initial visual inspection of the remaining product from the relevant batch has not indicated a concern, but this additional laboratory testing is underway as part of the investigation."
