Staying Compliant with the
Louisiana Bureau of Cannabis Control in 2023
METRC, which stands for Marijuana Enforcement Tracking and Compliance, is the cannabis governance solution providing end-to-end tracking and tracing for all cannabis supply chain activities to dozens of states in the United States and helping ensure a closed, legal ecosystem.
Medical Marijuana is legal in Louisiana. A bill passed in 2015 created the framework for dispensing marijuana to medical patients. Medical cannabis was only dispensed for the first time in 2019.Currently, the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) oversees Louisiana’s medical cannabis program.
Metrc has been chosen as Louisiana's seed to sale tracking program. A single business may only have up to 10 licenses at a time, unless the business has special legislative permission.
Although recreational marijuana is still illegal in Louisiana, possession of up to 14 grams was decriminalized in 2021. While there's still a long way to go, this was at least a step in the right direction.
