The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority announced a partnership with Metric to track their state's cannabis products. Oklahoma marks the 14th state and the District of Columbia to utilize Metrc reporting. The press release said Metrc reporting will "ensure accountability and safety within the state’s medical marijuana industry".
Metrc will be required for all cannabis business licensees to remain compliant with Oklahoma. The state's "track-and-trace" from "seed-to-sale" program prevents discrepancies and ensures a safe and complete removal of products in the event of a recall.
Oklahoma has a robust, business-friendly medical marijuana market that continues to break sales records during a pandemic. With over 300,000 registered patients and a large number of dispensaries per person, Oklahoma's medical marijuana market continues to thrive.
It is expected to take up to six months to implement the Metrc system in Oklahoma. “We know that businesses will have many questions in the coming weeks, and we will answer them as quickly as possible,” says OMMA Interim Director Dr. Kelly Williams.
Fortunately, Metrc does integrate with cannabis POS providers, but before selecting your software you should check to make sure they are a validated software provider. It’s also a good idea to speak directly to the compliance support team for dispensary software to ensure the integration is truly fully managed by the POS.
Before making a big investment, medical marijuana dispensary owners want to know that the automated reporting will be reliable and that the support team is there to assist if need be. IndicaOnline offers both for licensed cannabis retailers, and the new RFID scanner will revolutionize how dispensaries audit their inventory.
