Fairbanks marijuana store shut down by state for alleged major violations

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The first marijuana shop to receive approval for its state retail license has now become the first to lose it.
Local business 'Frozen Budz' was shut down Friday by the state marijuana control board, a month after being stripped of its manufacturing license.
In statements at meetings where the decision to revoke Frozen Budz was made, state officials said the shop knowingly sold thousands of products containing unverified and untested levels of marijuana, some of which had far more than the advertised dose of THC, and some of which had none at all.
The state also said the store sold moldy edibles, and that employees consumed pot on the premises.
Frozen Budz owners, Nick and Destiny Neade, have the right to appeal the revocation of their manufacturing and retail licenses, as well as a fine of $500-thousand dollars levied by the state.
They haven't yet announced if they plan to do so.
