Washington’s Broken Cannabis Traceability System Is Wearing Down The Industry

Washington’s Broken Cannabis Traceability System Is Wearing Down The Industry

Bobby Adams was stuck in Seattle rush-hour traffic while making a delivery from eastern Washington. His van, full of fresh Daddy Fat Sacks cannabis products. He calls the retailer to let them know he’s going to be late for his delivery, but he’ll be there. One problem, the order hasn’t shown up in the retailer’s inventory system yet. It’s 5:30 and the inventory specialist is leaving at 6:00. If the cannabis traceability system doesn’t register the order in time, Bobby is stuck with thousands of dollars in product.

At best, he’ll drop the product off tomorrow, but he’s out hotel money and a day of his time. At worst, the retailer cancels the late order and finds another producer to fill it on quick notice. That’s how cut-throat the cannabis business is behind the scenes. One delivery can make or break these small tier-one producers. This highlights the importance of a working cannabis traceability system, something Washington simply does not have and hasn’t had in over 15 months.
