METRC District of Columbia Overview
THE DISTRICT WELCOMES YOU
Medical cannabis in the District of Columbia, legalized by the passage of the Legalization of Marijuana for Medical Treatment Amendment Act of 2010, allows DC residents, including minors, to be prescribed, purchase, possess and use cannabis to treat a diagnosed qualifying medical condition or related side effect.
The District’s reciprocity rules allow non-DC residents enrolled in another jurisdiction’s active medical cannabis program to purchase medical cannabis at a DC-licensed dispensary.
Administration of the District’s medical cannabis program is led by the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA). Metrc is the District’s selected track-and-trace system.

What Is Metrc?
First, let’s talk about what Metrc is. METRC stands for Marijuana Enforcement Tracking Reporting & Compliance. It is a cloud-based seed-to-sale solution required for licensed cannabis organizations in 14 states. The District of Columbia and Colorado are two states that require Metrc. Metrc is hosted on a web-based portal. In the portal, users log in and interact to report information for their licensed operations.
What Does Metrc Track?
Next, let’s explore what Metrc does and what it tracks. Basically, Metrc focuses on reporting, tracking, and compliance. They primarily track three things. To start, they track what you have on hand. After that, they track how much you have. And, finally, they track where it is in your facility. In addition, Metrc tracks the custody of plants and cannabis products produced or held by a licensed entity. Metrc also tracks all external transfers of plants and products between licensees. Finally, Metrc reports lab testing results for all finished cannabis products that will be sold in a dispensary.
How Does Metrc Work?
You may be wondering how Metrc works. First, cannabis producers (growers) purchase plant and package tags in the states where Metrc is required for seed-to-sale tracking. The growers buy the tags through the Metrc platform. Afterward, the tags are embedded with barcodes and RFID technology. As a result, regulatory bodies ensure that plants and products are not illegally diverted to the black market. In summary, the Metrc system tracks and registers every plant, batch, harvest, and cannabis product.
