State Suspends License Of Walled Lake Marijuana Business

August 16, 2019 - 7:07 pm

WALLED LAKE (WWJ) - State regulators have suspended the license of a medical marijuana facility in Oakland County.

The Marijuana Regulatory Agency alleges that Iron Laboratories, located on E West Maple Rd. near Decker in Walled Lake, violated rules regarding testing and reporting results for pesticides, yeasts, molds and THC content. 

“Michigan’s marijuana laws and rules were established to provide safe sources of medical marijuana to Michigan residents,” said Attorney General Dana Nessel, in a statement. “Accurate testing and transparent reporting are critical to ensuring a safe product, and misleading or unreliable information only impedes that process. Our office is committed to working closely with the Marijuana Regulatory Agency to take action against those facilities that disregard the rules to the detriment of the public and industry fairness.”

Under Michigan's marijuana law, the agency can suspend a license without notice or hearing if it determines a facility could jeopardize health and safety. 

"It is imperative that our licensees follow the rules and laws, especially regarding the testing of medical marijuana product,” said MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo. “We are intensely focused on making sure that the marijuana product in the regulated industry meets established safety standards.”

So far, the MRA said it's not aware of any adverse product reactions in conjunction with the business' products, and no products are being recalled at this time.

The investigation is ongoing.
