Cannabis cultivator could be revoked by Rhode Island regulators

RI Regulators target cannabis cultivator over alleged violations

In Rhode Island, Fire Ganja, a licensed cannabis cultivator, could lose its license after allegations of undisclosed ownership and cannabis that was not been properly tagged. The Rhode Island Office of Cannabis Regulation has scheduled a show-cause hearing for September 15, after the discovery of 1,473 untagged plants and other unregistered cannabis products at their facility in June. These findings started after a Fire Ganja owner sent an email to regulators requesting assistance to add mother plants into the state’s METRC seed-to-sale tracking system. After an on-site inspection, regulators found untagged cannabis on site and learned that Fire Ganja was recently engaged in litigation with a loan repayment company over ownership issues. This upcoming hearing will provide Fire Ganja with an opportunity to address the allegations, potentially resulting in a settlement, revocation of their license, or further legal proceedings.
