- John shares that as the cannabis industry has consolidated, license holders have increased their multi-state operations to nearly all legal markets. John notes that each state has disparate commercialization, rules, and compliance regulations, creating a need for different packaging and compliance information.
- John predicts with the legalization of cannabis at the federal level, we could see a situation where there are centralized locations for the cultivation, processing, and sale of cannabis. When this happens, John believes many existing cultivation centers will likely expand and become centralized locations for distribution. This would allow for interstate commerce of cannabis and would make it easier for people to access legal cannabis.
- The cannabis industry is growing at an unprecedented rate, and with that growth comes the need for innovative technology solutions. John shares how automation plays a crucial role in the packaging and extraction of cannabis. John believes that to support continued growth, we need support for small businesses to upgrade and update their equipment to be manufacturing more goods in the United States, as well as improve port infrastructure to keep pace with other locations in Asia, Africa, and South America.
- A new division of DIZPOT is DIZLOGIC, a 3PL and freight forwarding software for international transport services. It improves the transparency of where products are today in transit, mitigating risk when they become retail items. DIZLOGIC covers logistics from production and manufacturing through the market, providing valuable information to help target demographics geographically. John also shares the intelligence of the DIZLOGIC platform and how it helps manage costs for those in the cannabis industry.
