Below are some brief answers to some of the questions we’ve heard most recently:


What is changing?

The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) has decided to replace BioTrack with Leaf Data Systems as the state traceability provider.

Green Bits will continue to fully integrate with the new state traceability system.

When is the transition happening?

The transition target date is January 2, 2018.

Do I have to replace my system before the transition?

The LCB is replacing THEIR system. When you enter data into a Green Bits system, it also submits that data to the LCB’s system, but they are separate systems.

Will the Green Bits system be integrated with Leaf Data Systems?

Yes, Green Bits is working to provide full integrations with Leaf Data Systems with all license types. 

What do I need to do during the switch over?

Starting October 1st, we have been providing weekly updates to Green Bits customers and will continue to do so until Leaf Data Systems is up and running.        

Does the transition affect how I sell to my customers?

If you are a Green Bits customer, this transition does not impact your front office/POS system. You can continue to sell the same way you have been selling to your customers.

What will happen to my historical data?

The data contained within your Green Bits system is your data. Nothing will happen to it. The data submitted from your system to the LCB’s Traceability System is their data, and they have had access to their own data since its first day of operations in early 2014. It is the responsibility of MJ Freeway to migrate the LCB’s data from the LCB’s Traceability System to the LCB’s new Leaf Data Systems without any effect to you.
