PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 15, 2015 /Weed Wire/ — The Oregon Liquor Control Commission will release the final Application Programming Interface (API) criteria for the State of Oregon’s Recreational Marijuana License Cannabis Tracking System on Thursday, December 17, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. at OLCC Headquarters at 9079 SE McLoughlin Blvd, Portland, OR 97222.
All licensees in Oregon’s Recreational Marijuana system are required to use the Cannabis Tracking System (CTS). Oregon law requires the CTS be used to ensure that marijuana and marijuana products grown within the licensed system do not leak out to the unregulated market.
The API allows Oregon licensees who prefer to transmit daily CTS data electronically to update the state data system without the need for additional updating by manual data entry.
The OLCC has selected Franwell Metrc Inc. to provide, operate, and maintain the CTS, and to train the recreational marijuana industry on how to use the CTS.
Franwell will be responsible for certifying software solution providers that want their product to integrate with the CTS.
Representatives from Oregon’s software industry, the recreational marijuana industry, Franwell Metrc, and the OLCC will be available to answer questions about the recreational marijuana license environment, the CTS, and the software needs of the marijuana industry.
Software solution providers may call in using the following phone bridge: 1-888-251-2909; Participant code: 8650734
Additional information can be found on the OLCC website and the Franwell Metrc Oregon website as it becomes available.
