Kentucky selects Metrc as track-and-trace

Metrc has inked a new contract with the Commonwealth of Kentucky to support the regulation of its medical cannabis market.

In March of this year, Governor Andy Beshear signed Senate Bill 47, legalizing medical cannabis in the commonwealth, effective January 1, 2025. Tasked with developing and implementing regulations for the Kentucky Medical Cannabis Program, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services aims to ensure Kentuckians suffering from serious medical conditions have safe, affordable access to medical cannabis, achieved via a commitment to evidence-based practices, transparency, outreach, and education.

"As Kentucky works to establish its medical cannabis market, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to launch the state's first-ever track-and-trace program," said Michael Johnson, CEO at Metrc. "Our team at Metrc looks forward to working alongside the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to build a regulatory framework that will create a marketplace with the strongest foundation, where patients are guaranteed safe consumption and licensees are provided an environment to thrive."
