BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — The California Department of Food and Agriculture, Bureau of Cannabis Control, and the California Department of Public Health offered a workshop Monday in Bakersfield about how commercial marijuana will be tracked.
The state is using a track-and-trace system called Metrc. It's a large database that will be used to record the inventory and movement of cannabis from cultivation to sale.
All state cannabis licensees will need to use Metrc to be in compliance with state regulations. Details on the tracking system can be found here.
The public workshops on the system are happening around the state. For future locations and dates, click here.
