CT to Observe Hashish from When It’s Planted to When It’s Offered – NBC Connecticut

The state of Connecticut will track cannabis from first plant to sale to the consumer and has selected a service to track its inventory.

Cannabis was approved for adult use in Connecticut in June, and the Drug Control Department of the U.S. State of Consumer Protection said it would use a inventory tracking system to get real-time information on cannabis stocks and prevent them from being illegally diverted.

The state announced Monday that it has selected Consultants Consortium, Inc. and its partner Forian for its Biotrack inventory tracking system.

The system will monitor the movement of cannabis products in the state’s medical cannabis markets and for adult use, according to the state Department of Consumer Protection.

Officials said cannabis licensees would need to enter information into the cannabis analysis tracking system.

“The ability to track the state’s cannabis stocks from seed to sale will enable the department to monitor cannabis production and stocks from the earliest stages of growth to reaching the qualified patient or consumer,” said DCP Commissioner Michelle Seagull in a statement. “This information will enable us to see what is currently available in both markets, forecast future inventory levels, and identify potential diversions in the markets.”

The Department of Consumer Protection said the Department and Department of Revenue Services will use what is known as “seed-to-sale tracking” to track cannabis from being planted as a seed or clone to being sold to consumers. The information collected will be made available to other companies, including law enforcement agencies, in accordance with legal requirements.

Retail sales of adult cannabis are expected to begin in the state by the end of 2022.
