In a press release KIND Financial, a leader in technology for cannabis compliance, announced a partnership with Microsoft to create KIND Government Solutions.

KIND Government Solutions will provide State, County, and Municipalities with technology purpose-built to  track and trace (‘seed to sale’) legal cannabis.

“No one can predict the future of cannabis legalization, however, it is clear that legalized cannabis will always be subject to strict oversight and regulations similar to alcohol and tobacco; and, KIND is proud to offer governments and regulatory agencies the tools and technology to monitor cannabis compliance,” said KIND Financial Founder & CEO David Dinenberg, “I am delighted that Microsoft supports KIND’s mission to build the backbone for cannabis compliance.”

The initiative is part of Microsoft’s Health and Human Services Pod for Managed Service Providers project.

Cannabis is legal in the state of Washington, and Jamen Shively, a former corporate strategy manager for Microsoft, has earlier left Microsoft to start the “Starbucks of Cannabis.”
