LAKELAND, FL – Today, Metrc announced a new state contract with Maine’s Office of Marijuana Policy (OMP), expanding the technology company’s foothold in the Northeast and further securing its position as the nation’s leading solution for cannabis and hemp governance.
“With Maine coming on board, Metrc now has the most state government contracts of any track-and-trace system in the nation,” said Jeff Wells, CEO, Metrc. “We look forward to bringing our world-class technology and expertise to the state and help get its new, legal adult-use market off the ground.”
The change in Maine’s track-and-trace provider from BioTrackTHC to Metrc was first announced by the OMP in December 2019. Metrc has a successful track record onboarding regulators and industry into its system– for both medical and adult-use marijuana – as seen in 2017 when it took over Nevada’s state contract from MJ Freeway, and in 2019 when it helped Michigan launch its adult-use marketplace one month ahead of schedule. Metrc will be operational in time for the OMP to launch the state’s first legal adult-use marketplace this spring.
Building off of major company growth in 2019, Metrc now supports 13 states and the District of Columbia. Last year, Colorado’s Office of the State Auditor called Metrc the “cornerstone of the state’s regulatory structure for medical and retail marijuana.” And, more recently, Metrc played a critical role mitigating the public health impact of bad vaping products in Ohio and Massachusetts, and inaccurately tested goods in Nevada.

Metrc’s solution ensures a secure supply chain, transparency, and public health, providing a safe marketplace for everyone.
