A cannabis testing facility in Massachusetts agreed to spend a $225,000 fine for improper disposal of marijuana merchandise.

The state Cannabis Manage Commission authorized the settlement with MCR Labs, MassLive.com reported.

As aspect of the settlement agreement, the Framingham facility admitted that an employee place marijuana waste in an unlocked dumpster more than 4 days in January.

Framingham police had been alerted to suspicious activity close to the dumpster and investigated, according to Boston 25 News.

The commission also identified the lab’s records did not appropriately document how 7,520 samples had been disposed of.

MCR Labs agreed to employ a facility and safety manager, as properly as a compliance manager. It also agreed to spend the fine in installments more than a six-month period.

Enterprise President Michael Kahn released a statement saying the lab has “implemented enhanced protocols for waste disposal” that will comply with regulations.
