BOSTON (WWLP)—Massachusetts is preparing to roll out the state’s recreational marijuana industry. Before cannabis shops can open, Massachusetts will need software for licensing and tracking cannabis plants and products from “seed to sale.”
The Cannabis Control Commission Tuesday approved contracts with two companies that will provide software necessary to get the industry up and running. The Commission will get licensing software from Salem-based JD Software, and seed-to-sale software called Metrc from Florida-based Franwell. California, Colorado and Nevada use the system which enables government agencies to track marijuana plants and products and ensure the law is being enforced.
“Getting the contracts done as quickly as you guys did gave us a good chance of getting done on time,” the Commission’s Chair Steven Hoffman said.
