How Businesses Are Affected by Increased Regulatory Compliance in the Cannabis Industry

Can your supply chain software run your business while also keeping you compliant?

Cannabis businesses are facing a growing challenge: Compliance.

So far, 9 U.S. states have legalized recreational marijuana and 29 U.S. states have legalized medical marijuana. As the cannabis industry continues to grow and mature, however, states are ratcheting up their oversight and expectations, and there is an increasing need for consistency in regard to the quality of the product and the operations that surround it. 

Operators have to maintain compliance with state regulations while also thinking ahead to what will happen when the federal government removes cannabis as a Schedule 1 drug, paving the way for the FDA and other federal organizations to become involved. Naturally, we have to be prepared by asking ourselves some important questions, such as:

  • How do I prevent fines when being audited?
  • What can I be doing to avoid a cease and desist letter?
  • How do I quickly and easily provide the information requested during an audit to both protect my business and allow me to get back to operations as soon as possible?

In January of 2018 the State of California announced they would be issuing annual licenses within 180 days and within that time the state track and trace system for cannabis, METRC, would be operational. With METRC integration imminent, now is the time to think about how to track plant movement and inventory levels to start reporting the required data back to the state.  The first step you should take is to find a business partner whose software platform will provide value for your business and also assist in helping you make this transition.

Going Beyond Seed to Sale Tracking

To help ensure regulatory compliance, safety and overall public health, states that have approved medical and recreational marijuana sales and use are leveraging technology as part of the solution. Most states have a rudimentary system in place (e.g. METRC) that collects the minimum data that is reported back to the state for basic compliance. For seasoned growers and professional operators, the solution doesn’t stop here. There is a more complete, faster, and intelligent layer of technology that is being used to support cannabis businesses across the value chain.

This does, however, further encourage individual states and the owners/operators of canna-businesses to focus on compliance.
