Cannabis Track and Trace Solutions on The Blockchain

Untitled drawing (3)Verity One USA, Inc., a Wyoming based systems integration company, has released a production-ready global supply chain management solution for the legal cannabis industry.

Verity is currently negotiating with substantial marijuana quality assurance labs, distributors, and regulators about initiating its Cannabis supply chain solution, with a focus on compliance with industry-specific requirements.

Verity cites interoperability with legacy systems, onboarding of new participants, as well as defective product recall capabilities as among the planned capabilities of the new blockchain platform. Verity will be able to track and trace Cannabis using unique digital signatures on the blockchain. This provides consumers and distributors with authenticated, immutable data on place of origin, quality assurance, and regulatory compliance for their Cannabis.

Adam Reiser CEO of Verity, systems integration expert, and blockchain pioneer said:

“ The emerging Cannabis industry demands a proven track and trace product management solution with a combination of legacy, blockchain, and artificial intelligence systems. The first visible use case of blockchain was Bitcoin (BTC), but the ideal application of blockchain is supply chain management for categories like Cannabis, prescription drugs, food safety and country of origin labeling.”

Blockchain technology has already been actively deployed in agriculture and food supply chains by industry giants like Walmart and IBM, but the Cannabis industry has remained untouched. For instance, IBM launched its blockchain-based food tracking network “Food Trust” to connect independent parties within the food industry earlier this month. During the August 2017 trial period, IBM partnered with companies of various sizes like Nestle, Dole Food Co., Driscoll’s Inc., Golden State Foods, Kroger, McCormick, Tyson Foods, and Walmart.

Furthermore, U.S. retail titan Walmart has given all its vegetable suppliers a 2019 deadline to join the Food Trust blockchain platform developed by IBM. The blockchain, in the case of agriculture and food, is meant to provide traceability, particularly in cases of disease outbreaks and Verity believes this technology is a perfect fit for the emerging Cannabis industry.

 

 

Protecting The Integrity of Made in USA Claims

Made in the USA & Apparel Reshoring- Expert Round-Up, How America Can Create Jobs by Andy Grove

Three Senate Democrats have directed a letter to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) insisting it fully enforce its “Made in the USA” labeling standards in the aftermath of recent agency decisions to settle with companies that allegedly marketed foreign-made goods as domestically produced.

Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut and Sen. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin drafted a memorandum to the FTC on Monday stating they were concerned about recent agency decisions to reach “no-fault, no-money” settlements with companies alleged to have sold imported equipment under a “Made in the USA” label, instead of pursuing fines and admissions of guilt from the firms involved.

Protect your Marijuana Strain and Brand using Blockchain and (UPC) Universal Product Code.

Protect your Marijuana Strain and Brand using Blockchain and (UPC) Universal Product Code.

With Marijuana listed as a Schedule 1 drug in the United States, business owners and growers face strict Federal restrictions. These governmental commerce restrictions pose issues to brand owners and growers wishing to protect their personal Marijuana brands (strains) with trademarks Albeit, some states have begun adopting their own policies regarding Marijuana commerce and trade, the United States Patent and Trade Office (USPTO) presumes ultimate control in distributing trademarks and brand protection.

A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol, or design, or combination of words, phrases, symbols, or designs, that identifies and distinguishes the source of goods of one party from those of others1.  Ultimately, a trademark offers an incredible value-add to brand owners using a brand name that is recognized by consumers which therefore drives customers to their business. Business owners/growers seeking to protect their personalized crops or bring legitimacy to commonly known strains face issues in providing customers with strain and crop assurance due to these strict regulations on Marijuana commerce.

Why ‘Made in America’ Is Stitched Into the Law, but Not the Uniforms

WASHINGTON — President Trump’s push to “buy American” has been a key initiative of his administration, and Mr. Trump speaks frequently about ensuring that the federal government is buying American products.

So it might come as a surprise that the uniforms of those Secret Service agents that protect and surround him every day are probably made outside the United States, most likely in Mexico.

The United States government has several laws on the books that require the military and other national security agencies to buy from American sources, when possible. But a new report from the Government Accountability Office shows how a primary rule covering the Department of Homeland Security, called the Kissell Amendment, has been undercut by a slew of bureaucratic restrictions and obligations required by international trade agreements.

As a result, over roughly the past three years, more Secret Service uniforms have been made in Mexico than in any other country — including the United States. The same goes for uniforms procured for Transportation Security Administration workers. The majority of uniforms for Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are also made outside the United States, in countries like El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico and Cambodia.

“It really doesn’t have much impact at all,” Kimberly Gianopoulos, the director of the Government Accountability Office’s international affairs and trade team, said of the Kissell Amendment.

Apple could build a TV — because of Trump

business-insider-small

The chairman of Foxconn, the company that assembles most of Apple’s iPhones in China, gave some remarks at a holiday party over the weekend suggesting that Apple could partner with his company to build a new factory in the US.

But most interesting is which parts that factory might produce: large flat-panel screens, which at least one analyst believes could be an indication that Apple is planning to build a TV set.

The Foxconn chairman, Terry Gou, said his company was considering building a $7 billion flat-panel screen factory in the US. Part of that $7 billion could come out of Apple’s pocket, Gou said, according to Nikkei. Read more of this post

Imagine a world where almost everyone can be tracked, and everything can be seen by cameras linked directly to the Chinese government.

The rapid growth of a little known Chinese manufacturer of high-powered surveillance technology has some people concerned that it’s no longer a theory.

Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology, a company controlled by the Chinese government, is now the world’s largest supplier of video surveillance equipment, with internet-enabled cameras installed in more than 100 countries.
