3p Traceability Week: Q&A with MJ Freeway on Medical Marijuana Traceability

Mary Mazzoni | Wednesday September 10th, 2014

Sustainability is inching ever-closer to the mainstream, but it isn’t the only green revolution sweeping the nation. I’m referring, of course, to marijuana legalization. The “Reefer Madness” days are long gone: Medical marijuana sales are now permitted in 23 states and Washington, D.C., and two states (Washington and Colorado) have outright legalized marijuana for adults 21 and over.

The industry has proven to be a big money-maker — Colorado raked in about $12.6 million the first three months after marijuana was legalized — but some growing pains remain. Washington and Colorado, where recreational pot is legal, have seen a wave of ‘marijuana tourism.’ As flocks of tourists seek out a taste of legalized marijuana, some inexperienced smokers may catch a sour buzz — as New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd experienced firsthand when she took one too many bites of a pot edible while visiting Denver. As Dowd found out, some edibles do not include dosage instructions; the candy bar she ate, for example, was intended to be divided into 16 pieces for novices, but that recommendation was not included on the label.
