Marijuana board orders Fairbanks manufacturer to close

Frozen Budz was accused of selling moldy, over-strong muffins and other marijuana edibles

The Alaska Marijuana Control Board has given the death penalty to one of Alaska’s largest manufacturers of edible marijuana products.

On Friday morning, the board voted to revoke the manufacturing license of Fairbanks-based Frozen Budz, fine the company $500,000 and seize all of its products, including those already on retail shelves.

The vote followed an extensive investigation by the state’s Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office. That investigation, backed by testimony from former company employees, found Frozen Budz violated multiple state regulations relating to testing, improper labeling, operating out of compliance, producing unapproved products, and failing to track the source of its marijuana.
