The MRA has allowed a marihuana testing facility in Walled Lake to reopen after they resolved their issues:
In August, the state filed a formal complaint against the company and shut down the facility for, among other things, finding marijuana that tested above the legal limit for various contaminants but not reporting those test results in the state’s tracking system. The lab allegedly also didn’t report edibles that tested above the state’s potency limit for THC, the psychoactive substance in marijuana that produces the high.
...“While we are pleased that the licensee worked quickly to resolve these issues, it is clear that these actions never should have happened in the first place,” MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon. “It is imperative that our safety compliance facilities — and all of our licensees — adhere strictly to the law and the administrative rules.”
Based on the news reports, this is a great example of the system working correctly. The state agency found a problem and the parties took steps to ensure safety of patients and customers. The process worked as it was intended.
Healthy skepticism is understandable in any action by the state, but this is a big win for everyone in the Michigan industry.
