Marijuana waste – when disposed of improperly will cause crackdown from Marijuana Control Board & revoke permits for non-compliance
AlaskaSense LLC operates a marijuana cultivation facility and a store in Anchorage known as Cannabaska. After failing to pay taxes, officials conducted an inventory audit on the facility. Officials were originally denied access to the facility dumpster due to a “frozen padlock” after accusing the owner to be improperly disposing of their marijuana waste.
During their search, investigators came across marijuana buds, leaves and stems on the ground next to a dumpster outside the facility.
Smadar Warden, owner of AlaskaSense LLC, has now had his handler permit revoked by the Alaska Marijuana Control Board, thus shutting down the entire business.
Do you comply with marijuana waste disposal regulations? Try a quiet, JWC Environmental electric, high torque shredder. No matter what you mix the marijuana waste with to make it unusable (soil, plastic pots, netting, food waste, etc.), our shredder can handle it!
Fields of cannabis plants are emerging in eight states where the sale and production of the crop are now legal. Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Washington now regulate marijuana as a legal crop. As marijuana becomes legal across the country, it is demonstrating a great ability to benefit state economies.
Cannabis is expected to be recognized as a top-valued crop in California. Farm data research companies estimate that indoor cannabis production could be nearly 9,000 times more productive than corn production on a dollar scale. While there is tremendous value in the newly legal crop, states are quickly putting regulations in place to ensure the proper handling of marijuana waste. With the legalization of marijuana, and a booming cannabis industry, comes new questions concerning the environmental impact of recreational marijuana growers and processors. With no prior precedent, these eight states are working with marijuana growers and processors to create regulations to manage water quality, water resources and waste management processes associated with marijuana cultivation.
Marijuana growers and processors are seeking efficient, high-quality methods for meeting the new state regulations. Swapping out cumbersome equipment, like wood chippers, for powerful grinders is just one way they can keep their operations productive while meeting waste disposal requirements.
With grinding capabilities both indoors and outdoors, the Monster Industrial shredder easily chews up wet or dry marijuana waste, including large root balls. Powered by quiet, electric motors, it transmits zero gas and exhaust fumes. The shredder runs at a low rpm, which keeps noise levels down. The double row of sharp, steel cutters, combined with the high torque of the grinders, allows processors to mix all manner of tough material with the marijuana waste to ensure it meets the 51 percent non-marijuana waste by volume guidelines. This allows them to skip the mixing step by jointly grinding the marijuana waste and non-marijuana waste. Watch this video to see it in action!!
