WeedTraQR Seed-to-Sale Software Certified For Use In Oregon

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

SEATTLE, WA  - The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) has approved WeedTraQR, industry-leading cannabis seed-to-sale tracking software, as a validated software provider for Oregon’s recreational marijuana program. The Seattle-based company has developed a platform that is compatible for integration with Oregon’s Cannabis Tracking System (CTS) to meet the inventory traceability needs of the state’s producer, processor, wholesaler, and research licensees. Operational for over two years in Washington with a rapidly expanding roster of clients, WeedTraQR lends proven expertise and hard-earned credibility to Oregon’s fledgling program.

WeedTraQR’s software will allow recreational cannabis producers, processors, and wholesalers to electronically transmit complete and accurate inventory and sales data into the state’s mandatory CTS, saving time and reducing the risk of error. All OLCC recreational marijuana licensees must participate in Oregon’s CTS; they can choose an approved third-party provider to integrate company sales and inventory data with the state’s system. One of only four providers validated for use by producers and processors, WeedTraQR pragmatically solves the inventory-tracking requirement in this early industry stage, turning traceability from burden to competitive advantage by supplying clients with data analytics and other operational resources. WeedTraQR also becomes the first ‘meta’ traceability software, reporting to the CTS in both Washington (BioTrackTHC) and Oregon (Metrc), making it an appealing option for companies with national aspirations and for those who currently license products in multiple states and want a consistent interface for all facilities.

As Uruguay’s Pot Industry Struggles with the Details, Growers Move On to Hemp

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

Legal pot in Uruguay got off to an international bang in December 2013 when it became the first country in the worldto legalize production, distribution, sale and consumption of the plant.

Former Uruguayan President Jose Mujica, whose administration also legalized gay marriage and abortion during his term (2010-2015), pitched the pot legalization law as a way to fight drug gangs.

As these several years have passed, regulations and restrictions have hamstrung the legalization project.

The government’s low price cap and strict production limits, is pushing less regulated hemp to the center stage among cultivators.

City of Portland Cannabis Tax To Benefit Local Communities of Color

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

PORTLAND, OR (Aug, 2016) – On November 8, 2016, Portland City voters will vote on the allocation of 3% of recreational marijuana sales tax to a number of causes, including the support of minority owned businesses and communities of color. The current state tax on recreational marijuana sales is 25%. The 2015 Oregon Legislature set the new tax base for recreational sales at 17% beginning January 1, 2017, with a provision that cities and counties may refer a local 3% tax to voters in the

November 2016 general election.  On June 22, Portland City Council voted to refer to voters the 3% tax on recreational marijuana sales. If the vote passes, it will be the first time this type of cannabis tax appropriation to communities of color will be implemented in the U.S. This is extremely important and appropriate, because statistics show that people of color, especially African American men, have born the brunt of prohibition enforcement. A study from the ACLU shows that blacks are arrested at up to 8 times the amount of whites for cannabis possession, despite nearly identical consumption rates. The comparative length of prisons sentences is also dramatically higher as well. This has had detrimental effects on targeted neighborhoods.

Court: Out-of-State License Plates Don’t Justify Search

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Law enforcement officials in Kansas cannot stop and search motorists just for having out-of-state license plates from states that have legalized marijuana, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday.

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated a lawsuit filed by a Colorado motorist, Peter Vasquez, against two Kansas Highway Patrol officers who pulled him over and searched his vehicle as he was driving alone at night through Kansas on his way to Maryland.

The KHP officers, Richard Jimerson and Dax Lewis, stopped Vasquez when they could not read the temporary tag taped to the inside of the car’s tinted rear window. The officers contended they were justified in searching the vehicle because Vasquez was a citizen of Colorado driving on I-70, a “known drug corridor,” in a recently purchased, older-model car. They said he also seemed nervous.

A Pot of Money: Oregon Collects $25.5M in Marijuana Taxes

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon has processed $25.5 million in tax payments from recreational marijuana from January through the end of July.

The state’s Department of Revenue says medical marijuana dispensaries were required to file their second-quarter returns for recreational marijuana by Aug. 1.

Oregonians legalized recreational marijuana in late 2014.

But it can only be sold by medical marijuana dispensaries until the Oregon Liquor Control Commission finalizes rules for the new industry. That’s expected to happen by next year.
