Transparency for Cannabis Pilot Trials in Switzerland
For the first time, cannabis is being sold legally in Switzerland. On 30 January, selected participants of the Weed Care study within the Swiss pilot projects will be able to purchase cannabis in pharmacies in Basel. A straightforward but reliable tracking system is required for the transparent execution of this project and all future ones. The Swiss company Vigia AG, provider of a track & trace software for the cultivation, manufacturing and distribution of cannabis, has developed the Cannabis Dispensary System in partnership with the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) in order to reliably document the dispensing of the products. This makes it possible to track the cannabis goods transparently and gives the foundation for scientific research.
