What do you get when you team group of cannabis industry veterans with a bunch of hot technology developers? The answer is CannaScore - the world’s first real-time compliance software for the marijuana industry, and the winner of our 2015 “Top New Technology for the Cannabis Industry” Award.


The insightful and intuitive program walks a certified inspector through a series of questions and will flag areas that are potentially out of compliance or need fine-tuning. The program sifts through virtually every area of a business, and identifies areas that are running smoothly, while red-flagging sources of potential violations and opportunities for improvement.


CannaScore is pre-programmed with state-specific regulations and up-to-date rules for most states with legal medical or recreational marijuana.

Medical marijuana dispensaries scored a major win on Monday when a federal judge ruled that the Department of Justice cannot prosecute legal providers of medical cannabis. 


In his ruling, Senior District Judge Charles R. Breyer lifted an injunction against a California dispensary, the Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana, and its founder, Lynette Shaw, ruling that a budget amendment Congress approved last year requires the federal government to respect state marijuana laws.


The DOJ is thus precluded from criminally prosecuting organizations like MAMM that comply with state regulations.


The amendment, sponsored by Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) and Sam Farr (D-Calif.), was added to last year's federal spending bill. Under the provision, the Justice Department is prohibited from...

Ohio has got to have the worst marijuna legalization effort the world has ever seen. They want a monopoly that locks out independent owners, growers, distributiors, and sellers. They are run by outsiders that seem to be motivated only by greed.


Now, they have put back the legalization cause by years by introducing a mascot that appeals to children.


What were they thinking?


Marijuana industry professionals have been striving to move the perception of cannabis from stoner to acceptable, and are working hard each day to have the public and government officials take us seriously as responsible business men and women.


We even removed Tommy Chung from our national lobbying efforts because he represented a "stoner" and the industry wants to be perceived as respectable.
