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.
