New Jersey selected Florida-based Metrc to provide seed-to-sale tracking for the state’s licensed cannabis program.

The state’s five-member regulatory commission voted unanimously to approve a six-year, $390,000 contract with the software provider, NJ.com reported.

This is another win for Metrc, which has emerged as the clear front-runner for acquiring state traceability contracts across the country.

With New Jersey, Metrc now has contracts in 16 states with legal marijuana programs plus Washington DC.
