The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) Traceability 2.0 Work Group, convened between September 2019 and March 2021, was composed of industry stakeholders and agency staff vetting the next generation of cannabis supply chain transparency in Washington state.
An agency email to the Traceability 2.0 work group members stated:
“The Board has initiated an effort called Cannabis 2.0, which is a purposeful look back on where the LCB has been with regard to the implementation of 502 and where we want to be in 3-5 years. A part of that landscape assessment is traceability — how have we been approaching it; what has worked and hasn’t worked; and what kind of approach we might want to use in the future. I am scheduling the first meeting that will focus on the future component of traceability — how should we be approaching traceability? Agency staff has had some internal discussions on possible characteristics and elements of a different approach, and are interested in hearing your perspectives and ideas on what traceability could look like. We recognize this will take more than one discussion and hope that you would be willing to participate along the way.”
