MJ Biz reports…….

Marijuana track-and-trace company Metrc continues its legal tangle with Missouri state officials over the right to charge “tag fees” to medical cannabis dispensaries.

In the latest development, Metrc wants a Missouri appellate court to overturn a lower court’s decision that would prevent the Florida-based company from charging fees for radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags, Law360 reported.

Almost immediately, a rival protested to the state that Missouri’s deal with Metrc could contain hidden costs.The dispute dates to 2019, shortly after Metrc was awarded a $5 million contract by the state after a competitive bidding process.

State regulators rejected the notion, saying Metrc’s contract did not allow the company to charge tag fees to MMJ licensees.

Story correction: In our first published draft CLR stated that Metrc had purchased MJ Freeway. We apologise, this is in fact , incorrect.

Metrc do not own any companies nor are they owned by an outside entity. Metrc operate in 13 states and DC. Their most recent new state, Maine, was  under contract with BioTrackTHC. The swtich was first announced by Maine in December. Metrc also took over Nevada’s state contract from MJ Freeway in 2017.
