Word on the street is that Microsoft is sprouting up to take full advantage of the flourishing legal marijuana industry along with many other IT companies.
According to a press release issued by a company called KIND Financial, it has been confirmed Microsoft will be teaming up with KIND to take the “seed to sale tracking” software to a whole new level. The software is to ensure all of the booming weed businesses follow the list of laws and regulations that govern the trade.
In the press release, Microsoft’s director of government solutions Kimberly Nelson said: “KIND agreed that Azure Government is the only cloud platform designed to meet government standards for the closely regulated cannabis compliance programs and we look forward to working together to help our government customers launch successful regulatory programs.”
“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,” KIND founder and CEO David Dinenberg stated. “KIND is proud to offer governments and regulatory agencies the tools and technology to monitor cannabis compliance.”
