Deliver a streamlined and effective cannabis licensing program
Cannabis regulation is a complex, emerging issue for governments requiring a coordinated approach between states, local departments and third-party technology, such as track-and-trace databases. New mandates—and increasing media and public attention on the topic—are placing added pressure on governments to move quickly and cost-effectively while also ensuring compliance and protecting public safety.
Accela Cannabis Regulation for State Governments automates the issuance of new licenses, renewals and transfers, investigations and hearings, and occupational licensing. It is a proven, ready-to-implement solution state regulatory departments across the U.S. trust to help manage every nuance of the regulation process.
