Washington Traceability's Route to CCRS
Washington’s Initiative 502, passed by a 56 to 44 percent margin in November 2012, marked a significant milestone in the United States. It made Washington the pioneer state to legalize recreational marijuana use. I502 paved the way for the official commencement of recreational marijuana sales in the summer of 2014. The Liquor and Cannabis Board was tasked to gameplan a solution to track the origin of the cannabis products. After bids were placed by numerous companies, BioTrack, a traceability software provider, was chosen by the LCB to track products from their origin. However, after the initial three years, the LCB opted not to renew BioTrack’s contract, citing various reasons.
On February 1st, 2018, Leaf Data Systems, a company under MJ Freeway, was introduced as the state’s new traceability platform. Despite its launch, it proved to be overly intricate, costly, and inefficient for the stakeholders involved, leading to massive amounts of dissatisfaction within the industry. Recognizing the need for a more user-friendly and efficient solution, the LCB decided to sunset Leaf Data Systems in 2021, paving the way for an in-house alternative. This new system, named Cannabis Central Reporting System (CCRS), aimed to simplify the complexities and challenges associated with traceability. CCRS was specifically designed to simplify the entire supply chain, making the traceability process easier, saving time, and reducing costs for all the parties involved.
