New Mexico MMJ tracking system shows discrepancies

Reports from New Mexico’s seed-to-sale tracking system show that five of the state’s medical cannabis businesses actually sold roughly 200,000 more grams of MMJ than they grew from January through March.

A review of quarterly MMJ reporting documents by the New Mexico Political Report found the biggest discrepancy with Giving Tree Organics, which sold nearly 28 pounds, or about 13,000 grams, more than it produced.

Another MMJ business, The Harvest Foundation, grew about 64,000 grams January to March but sold about 70,000 grams, a difference of about 10 pounds.

How the discrepancies came to be and who’s to blame is an open question, according to the New Mexico Political Report.

A spokesman for the state department of health, which is responsible for the tracking system, said the differences may not be mistakes but could simply be differences in how businesses self-report their production levels. For instance, he said, the state asks for flower inventory at the end of each quarter but not other products such as edibles and concentrates.

One New Mexico MMJ business manager, however, said the problems could be attributed to user mistakes with BioTrackTHC, the software company that runs the state’s tracking system. Businesses need more BioTrackTHC training and customer support, he said.

    “Businesses need more BioTrackTHC training and customer support, he said.”

    Why am I not surprised to see that BioTrackTHC is involved? Sounds like the software isn’t quite what I’d call user friendly.

    All the states have this. Wait until some shmuck tries to start reconciling CA. When will we learn that free markets are the worst option we have, accept everything else we’ve tried. This industry is off on the wrong foot as far as, business management, professionalism, and accountability. The regulatory structures are laughable, MD, HI, PA, MN, NY, OR etc, etc.
