Microsoft and Marijuana?
If you were anything like me, when I heard Microsoft and weed mentioned in the same conversation I thought something like the image above. Hahahaha. Atleast playing them, I would say. I’m not hating, I love video games. It’s just that I do not have enough time to play them. I think I have a game of Madden going on for the last 6 months, the disc is just spinning in my Xbox360. Being a parent of two young girls doesn’t leave a lot of time to sit back and relax, it’s always go go go. I think stoners get a bad wrap from the stigma that we all sit around and do nothing, maybe we play video games and watch tv. I honestly wish this was true for me, my stress level would be lower. The reality is cannabis assists me to do what I want and be who I am without the extra anger, stress, anxiety etc.
This is a great infographic and write up from Hazel, a Dabbin Dad reader. Who would’ve thought, Microsoft is putting their hand into the cannabis industry. They can use the help! -DD
How Microsoft Will Help To Track Legalised Marijuana Sales
Legalising Marijuana has always been a debatable point. Several countries across the globe treat cannabis as a schedule-1 drug and have banned the use of Marijuana, citing the hallucinatory or mind altering effect that one experiences while smoking or consuming it.
However according to medical science, a compound called cannabidiol present in Marijuana, is known to be beneficial to stimulating appetite, reducing nausea or pain, and providing relief in numerous life threatening diseases like Cancer or Aids; thereby generating the need to make it legal.
Microsoft has recently joined hands with Kind Financial, which is a Californian company that provides ‘seed to sale’ software for cannabis. The software includes several tools to monitor and regulate the entire cannabis business life cycle.
The deal is to help the government, agencies and clients in tracking the growth of Marijuana from the seed – to its final sale, while keeping in compliance with the state and jurisdictional rules, laws and regulations of the cannabis-related businesses.
They would make use of the ‘track and trace’ technology that captures and provides the real time data on the plant inventory management or operational cost and transaction management etc., in order to keep a check and curb Marijuana from reaching the black market.
