METRC replaces MJ Freeway Leaf Data Systems in Nevada

MJ Freeway’s Leaf Data Systems will be replaced by Franwell’s METRC for seed-to-sale tracking in Nevada, effective November first, according to an email sent this evening:

The move comes just eighteen months after Leaf Data Systems was selected by Nevada for a 5-year term. Late last year, the state suffered a security issue , which was separate from the widely reported MJ Freeway hack. In this December event, more than 11,000 patient files were breached.

Leaf Data Systems was recently awarded a contract with Pennsylvania and with Washington, replacing BioTrackTHC. METRC had been awarded the Washington contract initially but never finalized terms. METRC, which initially served Colorado but has expanded significantly, was recently awarded the Michigan and Ohio contracts for seed-to-sale tracking.
