Adilas is pleased to announce full API Connectivity with Washington DC’s Metrc System!

Washington DC has elected Metrc as their Cannabis Tracking System.  Adilas makes connecting to Metrc easy with our powerful API integration tools.

METRC is a compliance management solution used by regulatory bodies for the oversight of the marijuana industry in each jurisdiction where Metrc is deployed. As a cloud hosted on-line software reporting system, Metrc is used by licensed marijuana businesses to manage and report supply chain activities as required by District rules.

The Metrc tracking system provides an important tool for Washington D.C.’s Division of Medical Marijuana and Integrative Therapy in fulfilling its responsibility to ensure that medical marijuana and its products are safely monitored from seed to sale throughout the District of Columbia.

Metrc is responsible for providing the technical and operational components of the marijuana inventory tracking system. The Division of Medical Marijuana and Integrative Therapy is responsible for the overall program management, compliance, and enforcement of the statutory and regulatory state framework of the medical marijuana program.

Additional information regarding medical marijuana can be found at the Division of Medical Marijuana and Integrative Therapy’s website:

  2. Next, click the link “First Time Users, use your log-in key” at the bottom of the page and enter in your Metrc issued login key to set up your login user name and password.
  3. Once logged in, click on the user profile in the top left corner and select “API Keys” from the pulldown menu.
  4. Click the “Generate” Button and your new custom API key will be generated.
  5. Copy that API by highlighting it and pressing Ctrl and C (on PC) or Command and C (on Mac) to save it to your system memory.

Once you have an API Key you can connect your Adilas system directly to Metrc:

  • From your Adilas Classic Homepage, click on “More Options” and click on the link “3rd party solutions”.
