California's decision to name Franwell Inc's METRC
system as their cannabis track and trace vendor means that as of January 1, 2018 business will have a new set of rules and regulations to follow on both the local and state level in order to stay in compliance
and avoid costly business violations that could threaten the shuttering of their cannabis operation.
In order to keep pace with the updates, cannabis operators have been scrambling to get up to speed in California. The arrival of METRC means their business must fully integrate into the new system immediately in order to be in line with the METRC system's rigid standards.

The technology behind Franwell's METRC system helps inventory and track cannabis through RFID tags, the same type of tags that are embedded in credit cards. METRC stands for Marijuana Enforcement Tracking Reporting Compliance. The software enables the state to follow cannabis production from growth through point of sale purchase. This is further exhibited by Franwell's use of a time stamping software that tracks the movement of cannabis by documenting its history and location. This is to ensure that cannabis does not get stolen, sold unregulated and does not cross state lines prior to its sale. The METRC platform integrates itself into the Accela Civic Platform and Pega Certification and Licensing systems also utilized by state and local authorities to ensure a seamless regulatory operation.
The Franwell METRC system is a proven component in fighting the illegal transportation, dispersion and sale of government regulated cannabis. The system is currently being used in other marijuana regulated states such as Colorado, Oregon, Alsaka and Nevada.What Does This Mean for You?
