A Solution to the Compliance Problem

Written by Ezra Pryor

Many challenges come with legalization of medical or recreational cannabis in any given state or country. Once the rules are established, licenses applied for and given out, and the cannabis facilities are up and running, a challenge that very few are prepared for is compliance. Often people running those facilities are not sure what even needs to be done to comply, owed to new or rapidly changing laws and regulations.

Cann Report: The report dashboard which can display a near infinite combination of valuable information instantly.

State agencies which oversee that compliance are often just as underprepared for the practicalities of oversight as the cannabis facilities are to comply. In 2018, for example, Oregon was only able to inspect 10% of the facilities in their state. The results of those inspections were not much better with 27% percent of facilities having significant deficiencies and more than 10% with significant enough deficiencies that they were at risk of being shut down. Surely Oregon is not even the most egregious offender, since some states have no concrete plan on how to enforce their own regulations.

Cann Dashboard: Each issue is displayed on a list so you can keep track of them, assign them to your team and monitor progress.

You might think to yourself, no oversight sounds great. It means no fines or risk of getting shut down.  You would likely not be alone in that thinking, especially when it comes to operators shifting from the black market who are not accustomed to having to operate with any standards or quality practices. You would, however, be wrong, that is, if you value the health of your environment, consumers, and employees. State regulations are chiefly geared to protect the safety and wellbeing of the consumer, the employees in the facility and the environment we all share.

Cann Inspection Form: Easy to read yes or no questions tied to regulations, corrective action and preventative measures.
