Microsoft along with the US government will regulate the weed business thus, officially putting them into weed industry.
The American multinational giant is going to join up with a company that makes software for the cannabis industry, KIND Financial, to help officials track marijuana sales from the local to state level.
The job is quite simple to to make sure that all legal sales of cannabis are above board and totally legit, which can be only good news for pot heads.
25 states have legalized marijuana in some form, such as recreational or medical, but marijuana is still deemed illegal by the federal government.This software aims to help these states keep track of marijuana plants from “seed to sale,” the NewYork Times reported.
By the end of 2016, at least five states will vote on legalizing marijuana for recreational use.
“We’re psyched to see a major company like Microsoft jump into this space. It’s only going to encourage other companies to do it.At this point, it would be imprudent not to figure out how or where your company would profit from the emergent cannabis space,” said Allan St.Pierre, Executive director of NORML, a nonprofit organisation advocating for marijuana law reform.
With the entry of Microsoft into the business, in no time buying weed and smoking up in the open will be made legal in the whole of US.
