WASHINGTON: BioTrackTHC, provider of the Marijuana Traceability System for the State of Washington, announced that the first draft of the technical documents detailing its application programming interface (API) was made public late yesterday by the Washington Liquor Control Board (WSLCB).
These documents are being released to the public in draft form ahead of schedule to expedite the integration process for commercial application developers that intend to serve the producer, processor and retail establishments within the State of Washington.
“Our goal has always been to help the industry advance and succeed,” says Steven Siegel, CEO of BioTrackTHC. “That is why, in the spirit of cooperation, we are releasing the potential interface specifications ahead of time to ensure the smoothest rollout possible for everyone, even for our competition.”
The State of Washington traceability system is built upon the solid BioTrackTHC platform, enabling the state’s oversight and enforcement agency to be the first in the world to track marijuana through the entire supply chain from seed-to-sale. The released API manuals detail the various functions and data points that are relevant for the BioTrackTHC traceability system in its current form, which is subject to change.
“We are excited that our technology, which has been powering a large proportion of the Colorado medical marijuana market for years, is finally being brought onto the world stage,” says Patrick Vo, Co-CEO of BioTrackTHC. “Releasing this API, even in draft form, is a historic first step in standardizing marijuana traceability and data capture/exchange both nationally and internationally. We plan to raise the bar from the outset and look forward to working with the industry—rather than against it—to create the consummate marijuana market model, characterized by its transparency and accountability.”
