VERITAS ID™ F O R E N S I C I N T E L L I G E N C E
RFID. QR Codes. Labels. Tags. These easily defeated "cannabis security systems" offer little to no defense against diversion, black market infiltration, product adulteration or the like - they merely authenticate the label, bottle, package or tag - not the cannabis itself.
In fact, the above antiquated practices were never developed to fight diversion, piracy and counterfeiting. The same is true with 1D, 2D and 3D QR Code symbologies. Accordingly, government officials and cannabis industry leaders have been searching for a stronger, more sophisticated technique to identify “proof of origin” and literally track and trace the cannabis itself, but have yet to find an alternative solution to the existing systems.
The success of basic holograms, serialized labels and RFID tags as an anti-diversion measure has degraded and failed over time due to low-cost reproductive equipment and unregulated mass-suppliers selling products available all over the world, the internet (amazon) and even sold to the highest bidder (eBay). In other words, most anyone can easily circumvent these static practices to defeat the "security".
Deploying a global anti-diversion barcode or RFID system is impractical as these practices are "static" and easily spoofed, copied, counterfeited and diverted.
Again, no matter how flawed, the above systems merely "document" a serialized, often sequential number on the label or tag, NOT the cannabis itself. Accordingly, illicit or Cartel "weed" can easily infiltrate a supply chain and be "validated as legitimate" by these static and antiquated systems.
The Solution is GenesisOne™
Knowing the forensic identity of any product will revolutionize a brand and an entire industry. VERITAS ID™ is our cloud-based molecular nanotechnology system that scans the plant's specific signature to forensically identify its source of origin and unique molecular profile utilizing a mobile device, delivering results in near real-time, in the field and in the lab.
The forensic profile can only be detected by our patented sensors capable of reading multiple signatures within the same sample. This allows cannabis of different grades, taxation status (medical or recreational), or supply origin to each be identified with its own unique profile.
When deployed by authorized growers, processors and dispensaries, our live monitoring system forensically identifies the cannabis, its source of origin, and tracks and traces its movement during multiple stages along the route to the consumer, dynamically pinpointing the exact geolocation within the supply chain to prevent diversion, counterfeiting and fraud.
When growers, processors and dispensaries are held accountable for the source of origin and authenticity of the cannabis products they produce and sell, the rate of diversion and fraud drops significantly and illegal traders can be identified and prosecuted.
VERITAS ID™ is deployed at the start of cultivation or processing facility and is verified at every point the cannabis plant or product is moved throughout the chain enroute to the consumer. VERITAS ID™ is equipped with a real-time, intelligence gathering system that is automatically initiated when diversion, infiltration or fraud is detected, instantly capturing and streaming covert media data to the tactical command center.
The VERITAS ID™ system enables government officials and inspectors the ability to enforce state and local laws, not to mention collect appropriate tax revenues if the taxation rate is different for medical and recreational cannabis. More importantly, legitimate cannabis professionals can mitigate the risk of internal theft, selling cannabis of unknown origins and exposing black market traders that can be identified, prosecuted and put out of business.
Black Market Prevention:
By deploying VERITAS ID™ with law enforcement, state inspectors and border officials, authorities will have an effective means of validating the authenticity and integrity of any cannabis product, anywhere, anytime, reducing the prevalence of fraud, diversion and smuggling operations associated with the black market cannabis trade. Further, VERITAS ID™ will increase tax revenues for the state and improve the overall financial health, credibility and well-being of the legalized cannabis industry by preventing black market cannabis from entering the supply chain.
Government Compliance and Revenues.
Governments rely on taxed cajnnabis products as significant revenue sources. Criminal activities such as diversion, counterfeiting, and tax evasion steal this financial resource from the country and its citizens. When tax revenues are stolen, critical government programs go unfunded and health and public services suffer.
VERITAS ID™also provides comprehensive programs that enable governments to accurately and efficiently collect taxes to fund programs and promote market opportunities for compliant manufacturers.
These programs can recover hundreds of millions of dollars in otherwise lost taxes across the medical and recreational cannabis industry by helping revenue agencies identify where illicit and counterfeit cannabis products are permeating the marketplace. With this information revenue agencies can efficiently target their enforcement resources to stop the flow of the contraband products.
The Proposition is Simple:
1. If the VERITAS ID™ system does not detect the unique molecular profile of the cannabis in question, it’s illegal;
2. If the VERITAS ID™ system detects the unique molecular profile, but it fails the documented record, is out of the authorized jurisdiction, or otherwise fails the intelligence data associated with the specific profile, it fails and covert intelligence actions are taken.
Only VERITAS ID™ provides the cannabis industry with an impenetrable defense system based upon forensic intelligence. When combined with WitnessOne™, it becomes the most advanced and comprehensive security solution available in the industry today.
