Between July 1 and August 29, labs tested 10,695 product batches in California.

One indicator of that has been that marijuana tax revenue has not come close to reaching the state's projections.
"Mandatory statewide testing is a new thing and it's going to take some time for everything to run smoothly, but on the whole we're pleased with how things are progressing", said Bureau of Cannabis Control spokesman Alex Traverso.
