Metrc, a leading seed to sale tracking platform renowned for its comprehensive and robust capabilities, has recently secured the prestigious position as the official tracking system of Missouri. In a significant development for the state’s cannabis industry, Metrc successfully won the bid, amounting to a substantial investment of $5 million dollars over the next 5 years.
As the chosen technology partner, Metrc’s state-of-the-art platform will be instrumental in overseeing and regulating every crucial stage of the cannabis ecosystem in Missouri, from cultivation and manufacturing to distribution and sales. This strategic alliance with Metrc ensures that Missouri’s cannabis industry will benefit from cutting-edge tracking and monitoring technology, empowering regulators, businesses, and consumers alike with accurate and transparent information throughout the entire seed to sale process.
Missouri Dispensary Licensing
Earlier this month the state of Missouri dished out their first licenses for Marijuana Dispensaries. A whopping 1,200+ total applications were submitted. The Missouri Board of Health awarded 12 applicants for each of their 28 congressional districts.
This move has been long awaited for the Missouri cannabis community. Most voters assumed that cannabis would have been legal by now. The state put a substantial amount of time into developing the necessary measures to safeguard the industry.
Missouri Metrc Seed to Sale Tracking
One if the most crucial puzzle pieces when states go legal is the tracking system. Applicants are limited to a number of plants they’re allowed to grow. In order to effectively manage the consistently rotating crop, a “seed to sale” tracking software & tool must be adopted by the state’s enforcement agency. This provides a level of transparency needed to keep all licensees in check.
Missouri has chosen to roll out with Metrc, the most popular seed to sale tracking system in the United States. Metrc is based in Florida and is implemented into 13 other legalized states.
The In’s and Out’s of Missouri Metrc
