Iron Laboratories to Pay 100K Fine as Part of Settlement with Michigan’s MRA

Recommended Posts

October 9, 2019 – Iron Laboratories, LLC, a Walled Lake marijuana safety compliance facility that had its license summarily suspended in August, has entered into a settlement agreement with the Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA), MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo and Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced today.

In August, the MRA determined the safety and health of customers and employees was jeopardized by Iron Laboratories’ continued operations. As a result, the MRA took emergency action and issued a formal complaint and summary suspension of the facility’s license for alleged violations related to Iron Laboratories’ testing and reporting results for pesticides, yeasts and molds (microbials), and THC content.

Today’s settlement requires Iron Laboratories to pay a $100,000 fine, update its procedures and practices, and provide additional data and reports to the MRA for one year. 

Several requirements outlined in the settlement agreement must be completed before Iron Laboratories may resume operations. In addition, Iron Laboratories agreed that its Chief Operating Officer, Michael Goldman, would not attend or participate in sampling events, enter or alter data in the statewide monitoring system, or engage in any financial transactions with customers for 180 days. If Iron Laboratories fails to comply with the requirements of the agreement, it could be subject to fines or other sanctions.

“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,” said MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo. “It is imperative that our safety compliance facilities – and all of our licensees – adhere strictly to the law and the administrative rules. The diligence with which our enforcement team investigated and brought these issues to light demonstrates the commitment that the MRA has in protecting marijuana patients here in Michigan.”

“Michigan’s marijuana laws and rules were established to provide safe sources of medical marijuana to Michigan residents,” said Attorney General Dana Nessel. “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.”
