The New York-based Applied DNA Sciences wants to differentiate between state-compliant and illicit market cannabis by spraying DNA tracking tags on the plants, but some advocates are concerned about regulatory overreach and safety.

From Blackmarket to Business-Ready: How Cannabis License Holders Found a Software Solution with GrowFlow

Seattle, WA ­ July 24, 2018 – Every state that ‘goes recreational’ implements a state­-mandated inventory tracking system.

Inventory tracking and state reporting systems are methods by which states can properly monitor and collect taxes associated to cannabis transactions, and fulfill their promise to the taxpaying public that they will see rewards ultimately through public improvements.

The state’s inventory management systems typically require a high level of data entry and a provide a lower level of end­user customer support. This is where third­-party traceability software systems come into play, and where GrowFlow has quickly come into the spotlight as a leader in this space.

First things first: Lets define dabbing. According to Merriam-Webster in a recent “Words We’re Watching” post, it is “the act of heating a sticky oil or wax of concentrated THC extracted from cannabis and inhaling the vapors.” While dabbing is not technically a new method of consumption—it is believed to have first started in the 1940s—to newcomers, an illicit reputation remains.

Cannabis Control Commission on track to take over medical marijuana program

The Cannabis Control Commission, which is overseeing Massachusetts' recreational marijuana industry, is on track to take over the state's medical marijuana program by the end of the year, according to a recent report submitted to the Legislature.

Massachusetts legalized medical marijuana on the ballot in 2012, and there are currently 42 dispensaries that have been given final approval to open. The Department of Public Health has been overseeing the program.

But under the state law legalizing recreational marijuana, which passed on the ballot in 2016, the Cannabis Control Commission will take the medical program over by 2019. The goal was to avoid having two separate agencies regulating marijuana.
