Local police found hundreds of vials with extracted cannabis in a dumpster behind a Massachusetts marijuana testing lab that provides services for almost all the state’s medical cannabis retailers.

MCR Labs, headquartered in Framingham about 20 miles west of Boston, was one of the first two labs in Massachusetts approved by the state’s Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) to test products for the handful of retailers operating in the state’s recently launched recreational market.

Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer alleges MCR violated regulations on cannabis waste disposal and has asked the CCC to investigate.

An MCR spokeswoman said company officials met with CCC representatives this week and are working with the state on the issue.
