Yolo’s ‘Track and Trace’ Pilot Program Could Be a Model for the State

A group of marijuana producers in Yolo County will begin learning how to properly label, register and ship their cannabis products under a new pilot program for tracking and tracing locally-grown medicinal marijuana. If all goes well, Yolo’s new training series could become a model for a statewide track and trace program to be implemented by next year.

“We wanted to work all the bugs out of it ... to be an aid to the state in helping them select an appropriate program for track and trace,” said county agricultural commissioner John Young.

The county partnered with Switzerland-based global security firm SICPA, which previously worked with Humboldt County. The expenses are being paid through fees on marijuana growers.
