The South Dakota Department of Health will use two components of Accela's Cannabis Regulation ecosystem to regulate and support the state's new medical cannabis program. The systems will automate business licensing, patient/provider registry, and verification for the state.

"Accela Cannabis Regulation eases agency burdens in licensing cannabis cultivation, processing, and retail businesses as well as medical patient and provider management. With automated workflows, flexible license types, and strong compliance functionality, Accela Cannabis Regulation makes regulatory agencies more efficient and responsive," said Greg Felix, vice president of strategic solutions sales at Accela.

"The Accela Cannabis Regulation solution best met our needs by enabling effective qualification and identification of our patients and providers, proper vetting of businesses, and quick installation that met our statutory deadline. We look forward to providing our residents with a simple, fast, and compliant experience," said Lynne Valenti, deputy secretary of the South Dakota Department of Health.
