ID Scanning For Dispensaries: Best Practices For Compliance

August 26, 2022 | 12:00 pm | Room 1 | Compliance

As of 2022 there are no federal guidelines on identity verification for cannabis purchase – only confusing, and sometimes contradictory standards at the state level. Fines and penalties for selling to minors can be scary, especially with nebulous guidelines. In this session, ID scanning expert Kenny Peddicord will break down the regulations and recommendations by state to help dispensaries and technology and security partners understand best practices in ID verification and authentication. Kenny will also dive into multiple solutions for identity verification for the burgeoning delivery and unattended retail sectors of cannabis sales.

Kenneth Peddicord, Director of Cannabis Business,

Kenny is an industry veteran in the ID scanning and digital identity verification space. After handling an ID verification integration with LeafLogix (now Dutchie) in 2020, Kenny realized that dispensary ID laws were confusing, varied, and often contradictory. He is now exclusively focused on educating dispensaries on age verification compliance. He has worked with state control boards, multiple MSO’s, and technology providers to help outline best practices for ID scanning in both brick-and-mortar and digital sales environments, and has become an expert on ID scanning laws in all states which allow for sales of recreational cannabis.
