Utah selects Leaf Data for medical marijuana seed-to-sale tracking system

(This story has been updated to note that Pennsylvania also uses Leaf Data Systems.)

Utah regulators selected Leaf Data Systems for its medical cannabis seed-to-sale traceability program.

Leaf Data is a product of Denver-based technology provider Akerna.

Akerna, which trades on the Nasdaq as KERN, is the new company formed by the merger of MJ Freeway and MTech.

The next generation of Leaf Data Systems provides what it calls a “product authentication system.”

That system allows patients to “scan their product to learn the date of harvest, nutrients used, testing results, ingredients and more,” according to a news release.

The program is intended to help patients avoid fake products on the market.

Leaf Data Systems also serves as the state track-and-trace system for Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program and Washington state’s recreational cannabis market.

Washington state recently extended the contract so issues with the program’s latest software release can be remedied.

    Yeah but will they be able to actually deploy a working system? lol I wonder what the State of Utah is thinking right now considering all the data breaches and crappy software deployments they’ve had. I foresee nothing but problems with Utah but we all knew Utah would be an issue when we saw what law they passed.

    Utah is going to face the same fate as Washington…we have been unable to operate for nearly 2 years because of this useless piece of garbage software. Friends and colleagues have literally gone out of business because of Leaf data and MJ Freeway. They shouldn’t even be allowed to get new contracts until they prove that they can actually provide a functional system that won’t burden the entire industry.

    This will be a terrible mess for all involved in Utah. Leaf and MJ in general are trainwrecks and the patients and consumers in Utah will absolutely pay for the State’s mistake. Very unfortunate.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!! This is hysterical. Really? They chose MJ Freeway? Why? Because the CEO is ‘pretty’? Her software is a disaster.
