Aaron Riley

Anonymous | May 08, 2020 | 41 19

Aaron Riley claims to have a 'moral high-ground' against other cannabis testing labs -- however, he has personally allowed dirty products, such as: flower, carts, edibles, etc., to enter the licensed market to save his business relationships. CannaSafe is currently experiencing a rapid decline in sales in California, and have had a COVID-19 outbreak in their microbiology room — All the while they were pushing administrative employees, who have been working remotely, to come back into the lab and risk their health. There are multiple confirmed cases within the Cannasafe facility. Riley cut his employees pay by 20%, and then announced his press release coming out.

CannaSafe employees are paid a bare minimum compared to other scientists in similar industries, and consistently have to question their own integrity to continue to be employed. Aaron Riley lies to customers faces, holds employees hostage, and has no loyalty to anyone.

    This is 100?curate, but in all fairness what do you expect from a rich kid from FL with daddy’s money. Typical. People like this need to be exposed and weeded out (no pun intended). It’s about time you own your BS Aaron. The whole industry knows your S*** stinks.

    Look closer at his lifestyle.... He's tone deaf. As 280E pillages the livelihood of his clients...He leads an opulent lifestyle to say the least....He fly's private jets everywhere, just moved into another mansion in the hwood hills, owns a Mclaren and other luxury cars.. where does it all come from???.....supposedly it is all paid for with company funds...

    Aaron Riley is a snake. I worked for him and watched him do disgusting things. He’s a horrible human with the worst breath I’ve ever smelled.

  • May 09, 2020, 10:17 AM  Reply

    I am personally suing him and the team for the sexual harassment I endured there. He is morally corrupt. If he doesn’t get his way he finds a way, whether it’s wrong or right. I’ve never been more disrespected at a job and I look forward to serving him papers this year. Also, YES his breath is so bad. I used to have to take notes for him and omg I would hold my breathe. So nasty

    Ive worked here for over a year, since I started we have never cheated or passed dirty product. That is why the biggest and best brands test with us. Unlike other labs inflate potency numbers and help dirty brands pass failing products, and one of those labs advertise on this site. Most of these comments and stories all seem to generated by Aaron’s former assistant Kim. She would go around the back office talking openly about who she wanted to have sex with, even offering to do so in the bathroom. She had a boyfriend at the time too and was bragging about who she hooked up. She was always getting high at work and was offered a new job because she couldn’t even count the Cannasafe t shirts. Everyone wants to talk crap but there’s no BcC investigations, no lawsuits, and no proof on any of these claims.

  • May 11, 2020, 01:32 PM  Reply

    Aaron would make a point to pressure lab groups to change their processes and methods to give his big clients better numbers, despite this being against bcc regulations. Also know that he had his cronies write false positive reviews on various websites, and it looks like he had another one written here by @currently work for CannaSafe, who is clearly a cop trying to shift focus onto a random employee and away from cannasafe’s dirty dealings. Also remember Geoff and other creepy, married managers making gross passes at younger girls. This was well documented in actual lawsuits and settlements, and known among employees so I’d trust all the actual employees over this clearly fake ass account lmfao. Oh and his breath is literally poop.

    Current employee here. We're regularly told to tweak results to please clients. There hasn't been solid work for weeks, we're understaffed and being told to work faster to push product through. People are doing the work of 3 for what amounts to minimum wage in CA. All this and Riley is trying to rapidly expand. He's incompetant and an a-hole. We had to beg for proper COVID PPE and cleaning routines. This place is trash, and HR is useless. Basically, don't work here. I wouldn't if I didn't need money to live.

    How many employees type like this? This reads like a job posting trying to sell the company to perspective employees lol. Should have put a disclaimer that full benefits only come after a 3 month period that includes no benefits at all, because that is the actual truth. The saddest part is that outside the CannaSafe bubble, everyone in the CA industry knows that CannaSafe has a reputation for dirty business and unreliable results. Social equity programs mean nothing when they are only done for marketing, Aaron would cut them immediately if it meant an extra ride in a private jet for him.

    Everywhere I have worked provided benefits right away, with CannaSafe being the only company that policy. That’s a hard policy to push in the middle of a public health crisis CannaSafe is clearly perpetuating, with unsafe work policies leading to a covid outbreak. Sweetie, give up, your just making yourself look more and more like a fool thank you already have. Nobody buys your “I’m a benevolent job creator” fantasy world you are selling.

    I worked for CannaSafe for a year and a half. Always showed up ready to work and was loyal to the company even when others would mention everything that has been noted above. They offered me stock options, I received an award for my outstanding work ethic, I provided ideas to make my department better and followed their core values. One day I come in and they fired me. With out any warning or real reason other than I had poor communication. That in itself is wrong because they told us to speak up when we noticed things could be better and I did. I mentioned my frustrations to John Ayers but he would only ramble about his stories of past jobs and say that he’d talk to someone? When they cut our security and we had a random man sitting in our parking lot I told John and he said he would speak to Mallory the Lab Director but he never did. When I brought security concerns from employees to Derrick (COO) and Mallory (Lab Director) they said the night and overnight shift should not worry. In the middle of one of the largest unemployment rates in our history. It truly gave me a different perspective of how they run things. I know there are other opportunities out there so look forward too but it was just so shocking

    To clarify my point in bringing up the unemployment is that they could have demoted me but decided to throw me out like nothing without giving me a chance. Just very eye opening. All good though, just happy to keep moving forward!

  • Jun 16, 2020, 04:06 AM  Reply

    I worked at CannaSafe for a little over a year, and it left a really bad taste in my mouth. I had a really good trajectory in the beginning, and really felt like people cared about the work we were doing. As time past, it seemed like they either cared less and less or simple stop holding up the facade that they cared to begin with. They installed audio recording equipment without warning or constant from the employees, they added more and more cameras, they fired our first HR manager without warning and then lied to us about it for several weeks, and when confronted about it only made obfuscating comments about the situation. I say all this to establish the culture of the place. You showed up one day and there were tv crews in your common space, and whether you're okay with this or not you had to continue doing your everyday work. Or media department needs to film Neya and Derek pretending to read reports. And you just had to figure out how to do your work around whatever nonsense was happening around you. If you even had any work to do. The last few months I was at the company I personally would have so little to do in my own department, that I sought out other departments to train me and put me to use. I left that company having worked in almost every department in some capacity or another, and not once was this seen as positive. I was constantly told that it didn't "look good" that I wasn't with my team at all time, that my "coworkers" would see me as disloyal somehow. even on days when after about 3 pm (at the latest) my department would run out of samples to process and things to organize. The message I received was "do something to keep busy, but don't do that...or that....or that...or that." And everybody knew there was no work, but like children in an abusive home we were trained to be seen working or not be seen at all. There is this idea that if you have no work to do, then you should go home. Putting the onus on the employee rather than the employer. Which is what this company does best, they want you to help improve their business and methods and whatever else, but will never provide for you as an employee. And in the cases of some of my ex-coworkers, actively make their work environment hell. I want you all to know that I am not disgruntled, I left the company more or less on my own terms. I'm happier not working there, and have deeply cared for many of the people I have worked with there. All that doesn't change the toxicity of a CEO who clearly either never fully saw Talladega or completely misunderstood it. When the motto you see walking into work every day is "If you're not first, you're last" you really start to understand what they care about, and it is not you.

    As many of you have seen - I resigned from cannasafe yesterday. I can attest to Cannasafe being a criminal enterprise that just offers pay for play. I helped digipath become a criminal enterprise and then cannasafe. I’m no longer helping criminals so will join a decent lab next like BelCosta.

    Everyone is leaving to get better jobs elsewhere. When you pay your people an average of 3 dollars less an hour than your very local competitors, surprise, you're gonna lose people. Meanwhile Aaron tries to placate us by buying us chik-fil-a lunches (during the BLM movement and Pride...Talk about bad optics) and offering a "reward" to improve his processes for him. We're adults Aaron. We don't need a pizza party for getting good grades, we need solid pay to LIVE. You operate in one of the most expensive counties in the state. Use your head.

    Recently there has been a resurgence in COVID - 19 cases within LA county.

Let us not forget our world pandemic crisis amongst our claims for fair compensation.

    Aaron Riley is really awesome. He single-handedly changed a small startup into a big testing lab in LA. Cannasafe used to test only 15-20 samples per day at the very beginning. But under Aaron Riley's leadership, this company is now testing average 150+ samples per day. Aaron created 100+ jobs for people from all background. He never compromises on quality and safely of testing products. Pay might be a little low compared to other labs for employees, but this is to be expected working at a startup in a brand new industry. I'm hoping this will improve in time. All the best Aaron and Cannsafe! Spreading hatred and negativity would not let u down, but I believe will only make u stronger and better. You already proved what you are capable of doing and now there is no time to look back.

    This guy is from Florida. Ever heard of the Florida man? Did you all know he used to wear orthodontic headgear? He was that ugly (his sister told me lol). Aaron Riley is the archetype of his states native "Florida Man" species. Do not forget that under capitalism, there is no ethical millionaire or billionaire. This man tries to paint himself as an individual that has risen from adversity (he was only arrested once), and through hard work, has been able to establish himself and company. Nothing could be further from the truth. He's caucasian and both parents are college educated (that's where they met, his sister also told me), so you know he has never had to struggle for anything in his life. Through this easy upbringing, it is easy for him to use his employees as pawns to satisfy his machine of greed. All the higher science directors left because they don't any part of the sketchy deals that Aaron Riley and Antonio Frazier are trying to implement. These two really dont give af about ruining people's lives, whether professionally or physically. As mentioned in the main article above, test results are being skewed to make the clients happy and/or "meet" BCC requirements. He put his need to be No. 1 above these people's names and the integrity that comes with it. Which is why they are leaving or stepping down/demoted. He tried providing the staff masks, which are of poor quality. One the ones provided were made with rubberbands and of simple see-through material. From what I remember it was only once in which a professional company came to sanitize the lab. The fact that he sacrificed his own sister to return to the lab and work in the microbiology department, very same department where the corona virus outbreak occurred, speaks volumes of his character. If he does this to his own flesh and blood, what else is he capable of?

    I think Aaron’s missing component here is that a majority of people who have had direct experience with him tell you there’s a problem. I personally witnessed a lot of what’s said above and just saw how truly ignorant and truly stupid Aaron is. I do believe Antonio Frazier is a good man, I think he was roped into this whole thing and now has a family and doesn’t see an out. But Aaron? “If you’re not first you’re last” His whole Ricky Bobby mentality is just a prime example of what a true bafoon. I wish Aaron hadn’t had ALL of the past Indeed job reviews removed to expose his truth. Aaron is a pig. He has no empathy, no care for anyone but him and his gaping turd mouth. If THIS many employees are coming to the safe space to air what REALLY happens.... this is why this is here. canna safe can’t remove this, they can’t hide this truth any more

    Cannasafe is the first ISO accredited cannabis testing lab in the whole world. Last year, they tested 1/3 of total vape cartridges tested at California. Despite pandemic, they are expanding in Oregon and Florida and doing great. Just last month they renewed their ISO accreditation. Everyday they test more than 150 samples. That's why other labs and people are trying their best to make both Cannasafe and Aaron Riley down. But their nonsense and stupid behavior will not be able to do any harm to either Cannasafe or Aaron.

    Cannasafe is the 1st ISO accredited lab in the world. All the instruments used here are brand new and barely have any issue.

  • Jul 06, 2020, 03:48 AM  Reply

    Cannasafe is doing great despite pandemic. Some people have left. But that's mostly due to their personal issues and preferences. Every year, thousands of students graduating in science field with PhDs masters. So it will take only 1 to month to hire new scientists and other people.

  • Jul 06, 2020, 03:51 AM  Reply

    One great thing about Cannasafe is they always promote their own people. When a new job is posted, they tell their employees first to apply if eligible. I have seen several employees got promoted within only 6 months to 1 year after joining. At other labs, it would take them 10 years to get such promotion.

    What is true?! Jul 05, 2020, 02:25 AM

    Is it true that Aaron Riley has zero budgets set for Cannasafe departments? Is it true that his Hollywood hills home is one of nine cannasafe leases? Is it true that cannasafe is set to shut down by 10,2020? Is it true that Cannasafe is not handing out well deserved raises because cannasafe will be dissolved by Fall 2020? Is it true that Aaron used intellectual employees for his own benefit? Is it true that potency results were falsified on COA’s per Aaron Riley’s demand? Is it true that client demands took priority over transparency and ethical testing? Is it true that there was actually a third party audit that investigated the calibration curve discrepancies found prior to the June 2020 ISO audit? What is the truth and what is fiction?

    I have been working here last 1 year and everything u asked here, reply is big no. Cannasafe never did and will ever do anything u mentioned here.

    Aaron Riley is really awesome. He single-handedly changed a small startup into a big testing lab in LA. Cannasafe used to test only 15-20 samples per day at the very beginning. But under Aaron Riley's leadership, this company is now testing average 150+ samples per day. Aaron created 100+ jobs for people from all background. He never compromises on quality and safely of testing products. Pay might be a little low compared to other labs for employees, but this is to be expected working at a startup in a brand new industry. I'm hoping this will improve in time. All the best Aaron and Cannsafe! Spreading hatred and negativity would not let u down, but I believe will only make u stronger and better. You already proved what you are capable of doing and now there is no time to look back.

    Obviously with the pandemic, there's nothing else to do but lurk this page. Maybe all this $hit-talking would stop if we were getting paid better. We're expected to work 5x harder than other companies, yet other start-up companies are paying their employees more. This is why some of us are angry. This is why some are leaving. Maybe you don't understand because you're one of Aaron's "favorites" or getting paid more than the rest of us. Hey! How about suggesting a raise for the rest of your team? :)

    Garbage. What about all the executive vacancies? VP of Marketing, VP of Sales, analytical lab a manager? Do you mean promoting someone from intake to Intake Lead and making them a John Ayers robot? This is not 1920 where people work for 18yrs before getting a promotion especially when they have background qualifications. This truly shows the disconnect CannaSafe has and how little they value employees. More people will leave if things don’t change and voices aren’t heard. Yes, you can staff it with all new people (more mistakes in the lab) or you can pull your heads out your asses and listen!

    Clearly, CannaSafe attempts to silence any ill feelings towards all of the employees who have had bad experiences in hopes of continuing the unbelievable, fake image. Aaron does not care about you and to one of the commenters above, if Aaron threatened your job security over bad posts from an opinion site, what the heck kind of boss is that? It is obvious to me that Aaron has disrespected so many employees, past employees, family, business dealings, ETC. This man has been overwhelmingly under-qualified from the start and does not know how to run a healthy environment. Now, on to Mallory. While I worked at CannaSafe I, on multiple occasions witnessed Mallory gossiping and speaking poorly of her team and not in a professional way at all. But the worst? Danielle. Never in my life have I met such a miserable soul sucking individual. I don’t call people this often but she is evil. But this is what you get when you leave an idiot like Aaron to run what could have been a great place. You cannot expect any of Aaron’s henchmen (Tyler, Cody, Mallory, Dani) to have any type of moral code here. All i can hope is that MAYBE management will dedicate time to correcting issues verses covering them up

    Hey, I hear you and I can agree to a very large level. I think why everyone feels compelled to come here is they feel silenced and wronged by CannaSafe. Reviews are deleted off job employment sites, they shoot off legal notices to anyone who doesn’t play along with their narrative. I personally feel so wronged by Aaron and his behavior and my experience. When I voiced this I was silenced. At the end of the day people want to be heard. I agree a lot of this is rumors and it’s horrible anyone’s name was mentioned other than Aaron’s. If Aaron were a true boss he would look at these comments (good and bad) and try to hear people and why almost everyone has left and that place is a revolving door for employment and mistreatment.

    Cannasafe is so threatened by this tabloid article that its HR sent a perceived threatening email to all employees in lab. Instead of oppressing your employees, how about practicing some self reflection? Why is morale nonexistent? Why does everyone keep leaving? Nearly all of your management staff have resigned. Why is that? The people who are left are barely hanging on. No one is happy. Many are just waiting to leave once the job market gets better. You keep saying you care about your staff, but your actions and inaction say otherwise. We want this place to do well, but the current leadership doesn’t take accountability. Isn’t this one of your core values?

To send a threatening letter verses having a discussion on how things could improve? Aaron is a joke. He is a child with but-hole breath and a horrible human.

We have watched you spend company money on your male escorts and your obsession with young short men. I have multiple times had to clean up your meth pipe from your office orgy’s. Please accept this as my resignation. Stop threatening me whenever I try to leave.

    Hey Aaron, do you really want your team who handles your business hating you this much? We make your money for you. We could take pictures of what we do (daily) and take it away. If your office is an "open door" how come we don't see your lanky ass around until you have a tour to give? When you and everyone else pretend to know the day to day activities of your business which you leave to everyone else to handle for you? Somebody get this man a LIFE COACH. Ya'll need Jesus!!!

    Forget a class action, the workers here need to unionize and show Aaron who really makes Cannasafe successful. We outnumber you, Aaron. We're all college educated and broke as hell. We've got nothing to lose.

    I know Aaron and his management read these reviews. being a laughing stock of the cannabis world is probably hard. Just know, when you walk away, when you send an email, when you make an announcement, WE ARE ALL LAUGHING AT WHAT AN HORRID SMELLING IDIOT YOU ARE

    Aaron, why don’t you go back to Jacksonville and start blowing your dad and neighbors for money again. Get out of OUR industry. Punk.

    BREAKING NEWS: Aaron Riley was caught jerking off an English Mastiff off of Hollywood/ Vine. Sources say he was yelling “red rocket, red rocket,” before he took the full load of dog jizz into his mouth. More to come...

    Aaron is unattractive, unintelligent, rude and of course as everyone has said he’s a mouth breather so his breath is soo bad. How does anyone bare this? Overall, Aaron is wildly unimpressive as a person and professional. It did make me laugh to read all these comments as I never knew everyone noticed his butt hole breath like I did! But hopefully he picks up a toothbrush after this. Hi Aaron! I know you read these and my god that makes me happy. Brush those teeth. Who you have turned into is truly a disgusting person. You should NOT be in this industry. You have soured many peoples feelings about business and honesty in the cannabis world. I don’t trust you, your testing, your group of brainless lackeys, your treatment of employees and transparency. If you read all the comments, you’ll be able to point out this isn’t a single person who hates Aaron, This is about anyone who has interacted with him and he has come to discover he’s a bad person professional and personally. Aaron, you loose because everyone knows how you actually do business. It’s about as horrible as that gaping hole you call a mouth. But honestly you should probably see a dentist for that smell......

    I thought I was the most hated person in the industry. Aaron has beaten me. I’m on their side, fukk you Aaron. Cannasafe is officially the Medmen of the labs. Aaron Riley is officially the Trump of weed. I give you my belt.

    Aaron deserves more credit than he gets. I worked at Cannasafe before Aaron was in the picture and the stupidest place you could picture. it used to be run by drunk as a skunk randy haskins they could barely cover payroll for like 6 employees and had to pay out of their own pockets sometimes. Randy was always blasted out of his mind and made no sense, i think he was showing signs of early dementia. Matt Haskins probably was the kid in preschool that always glue and sand and was as useful as a chimpanzee sitting at an executives desk. Leah Shaffer ran the lab and she was a psycho who would scream and throw things on a daily basis. she constantly faked test results for either the many clients she was sleeping with (even though she had a boyfriend that turned out to be using her to try to get a green card) or because she couldnt get machines to work or was too hung over to remember to order new standards. She is one of the most brainless people ive ever met and had worse spelling than a retard 10 year old child. the lab was disgusting and people would eat and drink while they prepped samples getting crumbs everywhere. samples got mixed up all the time and they would always tell clients to send larger samples for testing so they could bank them up to make cartridges and prerolls with. they did this for the cannabis cup entries even. aarons breath does smell like dirty ball sacks but i do respect him for taking the stupidest company you can imagine and turning it into something that was successful

    oops i meant to write matt haskin probably ate glue and sand as a child. i never really liked aaron but he took a fecal fest of a company made up of dumbest people on earth and got rich off it. if aaron never came around cannasafe today would probably be just a guy in randys garage chained to a busted up hplc they got at a johnson university auction

    I can’t say how happy I am to be leaving this dysfunctional turd Aaron and Antonio call a lab. Aaron and Antonio put up a good front but don’t have the experience to back it up. All you’re management staff resigned. No COO, lab director, technical director, analytical manager, quality manager, sales and marketing vp. Any management left are toxic. It comes from the top.

  • Aug 05, 2020, 10:14 PM  Reply

    I work here and I’m seriously nervous about our lab director quitting. There’s not many people left in management, and I’m scared for our jobs here in lab. Is cannasafe gonna make it? They’re losing so many experienced managers and execs with years of cannabis experience. I don’t trust the new outsiders they’re bringing in. They’re no replacement for the people who left. Im like so many others here looking for a new job. There’s got to be a reason why everybody left and I doubt it’s anything good. These people left during the pandemic, the worst time to find work. That’s a big risk. Most people are staying put but something bad must have happened to drive our management away.

    I work here and share your concern, too. It’s disturbing that 8 of 11 management people left within the span of 2 months. What the heck is going on? HR keeps saying that everything is fine and to ask our supervisors if we have concerns. When I asked, nobody has answers and I get the run around about keep focus on work and do your job. The pandemic has already upended my family. If I lose my job here, my family is screwed but at the same time I’m very disturbed by the changes at Cannasafe. Aaron sure hasn’t done anything to ease my mind or help us low wage workers.

    Well EVERYONE is leaving because this place is run absolutely terribly. Aaron is a joke of a professional and it’s true his breath is really bad. Hillary is just another mindless lackey who follows Aaron’s que to be a crap person. All of the lowest life people seem to manage this place. WHY

    BARF. Have we ever met a more stuck up, rude, online educated (LOL DANI) and is an all around fake person? Dani fits right in here as her soul is as dirty as Aaron’s mouth. She is always on TINDER at work looking for her next threesome. Girl you nasty

    Have anyone ever work somewhere and seen mass exodus of mannagement people on this scale? They running away from something. You gotta ask yourself why these people cut n run in a bad job markets. Make no dam sense. Unless they all known something bad goin down at cannasafe.

    I've been working in the upper circle for awhile now and I can definitely say that CannaSafe is involved in fraudulent activities. CannaSafe is currently in the process of "killing all witnesses" and is purging every person in a managerial position who has witnessed the fraudulent transgressions committed by Aaron Riley through CannaSafe. The Chief Scientific Officer, Scientific & Technical Lab Director, L.A. Lab Director, Lab Manager, Quality Assurance Manager, Potency Lead, Intake Leads, and more have all been purged. They think that by removing all the people who were privy to the fraudulent inner workings of Aaron Riley they can pretend nothing is happening again. Spread the news. I'm working on my escape now to start working at a lab that is known for its moral and scientific integrity. I won't divulge the EXACT details of why their is mass exodus of upper management but just know, the reasons are not good. They are hiring another HEAVILY OVERPAID COO and CSO (for quite specific reasons) to try to cover for the mass exodus. I suggest, even in these trying times, you all seriously consider seeking employment elsewhere. I promise, not all jobs are like this. CannaSafe is a visage of great but it is hiding some sinister intentions.
