Marijuana 2017

WSLCB is in the process of replacing the traceability system currently used to implement ‘seed to sale’ traceability provisions with a highly secure, reliable, scalable, and flexible system provided and hosted by a third-party vendor. The contract with BioTrack THC, the current traceability vendor, will terminate at October 31, 2017

MJ Freeway is WSLCB’s Vendor for traceability. Its traceability solution, known as Leaf Data Systems, offers the opportunity to modify and advance the system as the industry continues to grow and develop. MJ Freeway has embraced a partnership role with WSLCB to help manage, implement and adjust the scalable system to meet the needs of licensees and the agency. 

System Highlights:

The new traceability system has three major components:

  • Traceability activity reporting
  • Compliance reporting
  • System interfaces

All traceability activities will be collected and maintained through a common, publicly available application programming interface (API). The system provides a free, basic web-based user interface for licensees, labs and  
co-ops to report traceability activities. It also provides an automated way for licensees, labs and co-ops to report traceability activities using third-party software systems.

Please bookmark this site and visit frequently to find status updates and information about the project, training opportunities for using Leaf and to see the progress made toward implementation on November 1, 2017. 

Important Note:

All licensees and their employees who will use the new Leaf system directly (without a third party/commercial software system) will be required to have Secure Access Washington (SAW) accounts. Please have any staff members who will interact with the new Leaf system sign up for their own SAW account at
