FAIRBANKS — Alaska’s Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office has expanded allegations of major violations in connection with marijuana edibles from a Fairbanks manufacturer.
Frozen Budz’s product manufacturing license was suspended Dec. 1 after allegations of excessive THC levels in their edibles, and a Tuesday press release detailed five new charges.
The business also has a retail license and continues to sell marijuana flowers. Until the suspension, Frozen Budz’s edibles had been available throughout the state, particularly in Southcentral and the Interior.
The new allegations say Frozen Budz has sold edibles contaminated with mold, used untracked marijuana, made products not approved by the marijuana control board, allowed onsite consumption and sold more than 114,000 untested edible marijuana products. The original investigation stemmed from a tip about a specific product, CannaBanana Bread. Industry regulations state samples must be selected from each production lot for testing.
Charges are based on independent edibles tests, records kept by the state tracking system and Metrc, as well
