Metrc in Massachusetts 101

In 2017, Massachusetts established the Cannabis Control Commission (MCCC) to oversee the state's adult-use cannabis program. In the following year, they awarded Metrc the contract for statewide tracking and tracing of medical and recreational cannabis programs.

In November 2012, Massachusetts voted on and passed Question 3, also known as the Massachusetts Medical Marijuana Initiative, permitting the use of state-registered medicinal marijuana.  In 2016, Massachusetts voted and passed Question 4, legalizing recreational cannabis use. In Massachusetts cannabis is fully legalized.

The CCC now has regulatory authority to oversee the entire state's cannabis industry and its licenses such as:

  • Cultivator 
  • Secure transporter
  • Microbusinesses
  • Dispensary
  • Consumption spaces

If your business plans to engage in multiple activities, you may require more than one license. Approved Massachusetts cannabis license holders must implement and stay compliant with Metrc.

Do I have to use Metrc in Massachusetts? 

Yes. The MCCC requires all licensed cannabis businesses register, utilize, and comply with Metrc's track and trace system.

How do I get Metrc training?

As the AMCC awards medicinal cannabis licenses, Metrc will provide training that is specific to the state of Alabama and its respective regulatory statutes.

Note: Metrc training is required as part of establishing compliance with their track-and-trace system. 

Am I required to purchase any additional hardware for Metrc compliance? 

Metrc operates as a web-based system, accessible exclusively through the internet with the simple prerequisites of an internet connection and a web browser. There is no need to download, install, or maintain any software nor purchase any additional hardware.

How does Metrc's trace-and-track system work?

Metrc uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) serialized single-use tags to trace cannabis plants, products, and packages throughout its lifecycle, including cultivation, processing, transportation, and sale.

How does Flourish simplify the use of Metrc? 

Flourish provides a seamless Metrc integration with its API, allowing Alabama medical cannabis license holders to effortlessly oversee their seed-to-sale operations while ensuring compliance with the state-mandated track and trace requirements.
