Utah is looking for software to run its medical cannabis program. Will police be able to search it? And how much will it cost?

The state has started its search for multimillion-dollar software that will form the spine of its medical cannabis program, serving as the repository for sensitive patient information and logging the movements of each marijuana plant.

The choice of one or more vendors for the task will be among the biggest decisions confronting officials as they ramp up the marijuana program created by Utah lawmakers in December. Glitchy systems in some other cannabis states have slowed and occasionally stalled marijuana sales with a quagmire of technical hiccups, delays and security issues, and Utah hopes to avoid a similar fate.

This means that debit and credit cards cannot be used to purchase medicinal marijuana, and handling this much cash puts a lot of dispensaries and their customers at risk. 

So how are dispensaries rising up to meet this challenge?
