Tracking pot plants from birth to death: Will California’s new ID program reduce…

From birth to death — and beyond, when added to foods and extracts — plants like this will soon enter California’s elaborate new “Track-and-Trace” program, providing the same information you’d find on a pack of gum or box of copy paper. Like other consumer items that are scanned billions of times a day around the world, cannabis is joining the world of identification, control and cold efficiency that defines so much of modern life’s mundane minutiae.

...

The two systems — the state’s METRC and the grower’s internal software — will work together in a hybrid fashion, with the grower’s data flowing into the state’s central reporting system. This allows the state to manage a large amount of information, but also enables suppliers to use the tools of their choice. At any point, the state can visit farms or manufacturing facilities to do audits.

Also included in the Track-and-Trace system are the product purity results from testing labs, which screen for pesticides and toxins.

What the new tracking and tracing system won’t do is measure and monitor the vast acreage grown by unlicensed growers. Industry insiders say the real diversion problem is created by black market growers who supply the majority of cannabis shipped out of state.
