Ganjapreneur write

Kentucky is partnering with cannabis compliance and tracking company Metrc for the state’s upcoming medical cannabis program’s first track-and-trace contract. The program, like other medical cannabis programs in the U.S., requires operators to closely track each plant and the resulting products from seed to sale.

Metrc said in a press release that the company’s track-and-trace platform “will bring transparency to ensure regulatory compliance, help combat the illicit market, and safeguard the health and well-being of Kentucky’s patients.”

“As Kentucky works to establish its medical cannabis market, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to launch the state’s first-ever track-and-trace program. Our team at Metrc looks forward to working alongside the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to build a regulatory framework that will create a marketplace with the strongest foundation, where patients are guaranteed safe consumption and licensees are provided an environment to thrive.” — Metrc CEO Michael Johnson, in a statement

The contract between Kentucky and Metrc will be the cannabis compliance company’s 25th government contract, the company said.
