Cannabis industry questions new system that adds chemicals to marijuana for tracking purposes - The Cannabist
DENVER — Despite a clear rejection by the Colorado Legislature, the state’s only cannabis research center is going ahead with developing a seed-to-sale marijuana-tracking system that no one in the industry says they want.
The Institute for Cannabis Research at the Colorado State University-Pueblo campus that was created by the Legislature in 2016 is using taxpayer money to develop a tracking system that would use an additive — a chemical or compound — designed to monitor where a marijuana plant was grown and where it ends up.
That tracking system was the mandate of a bill introduced into the Legislature during last year’s session that lawmakers rejected twice, primarily because the state’s marijuana industry loudly told them they don’t want to add a foreign substance to their product.
