State-Mandated Tracking Software, Broken Down by Market

Especially since Adult Use regulations began, many states have contracted with cannatech companies to build “traceability” software. These systems track cannabis inventory like plants and products to help the state regulatory body with oversight and accountability. Since the cannabis industry is fractured not only by state but also by Medical and Adult Use, this post is an attempt to catalog the traceability systems into one place.
