Secretary of Health Karen Murphy Thursday announced the Department of Health has selected MJ Freeway to implement the seed-to-sale electronic tracking system for Pennsylvania's Medical Marijuana Program.
"This is an important step forward in ensuring that we can get medical marijuana to patients who desperately need it," Secretary Murphy said. "This contract serves two important functions for the program: tracking medical marijuana from seed-to-sale; and creating a registry for patients, caregivers, and practitioners to participate in the program."
The seed-to-sale electronic tracking system will track medical marijuana from the planting of a seed until the plant is processed, sold to a dispensary, and then dispensed to a patient or caregiver.
This system allows growers/processors and dispensaries to track inventory and the amounts of medical marijuana dispensed, as well as monitor the prices paid by patients and caregivers for medical marijuana products.
The seed-to-sale electronic tracking system also contains unique registries that will offer patients, caregivers, and practitioners the opportunity to electronically register with the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program and access valuable information about the use and benefits of medical marijuana.
MJ Freeway is a woman-owned business that provides software solutions for medical marijuana programs, including seed-to-sale tracking. It currently serves clients in all regulated U.S. states, Canada, Spain and Australia.For more information on the program, visit the PA Medical Marijuana Program webpage.
