Tyler Technologies announced today it has signed an agreement with the Commonwealth of Kentucky to implement Tyler’s Cannabis Licensing solution to support the regulation of its medical cannabis program.

The Commonwealth of Kentucky signed Senate Bill 47 in March 2023, which established parameters and guardrails around the legalization of medical cannabis. The Bill will go into effect Jan. 1, 2025, and Tyler’s software will be instrumental in preparing for the launch of the Kentucky Medical Cannabis Program. As part of that launch, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) will ensure that Kentuckians suffering from serious medical conditions have safe, affordable access to medical cannabis, achieved via commitment to evidence-based practices, transparency, outreach, and education.

Tyler’s Cannabis Licensing solution will support the CHFS by delivering the tools needed to simplify cannabis licensing and registration for patients, business owners, and caregivers, as well as maintain regulatory compliance. In addition, Tyler will help establish the electronic licensing system and patient/caregiver registry for the commonwealth. Tyler’s Cannabis Licensing solution will be cloud-hosted, powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), providing a scalable, resilient, and secure environment for the software.

Tyler is a provider of cannabis licensing and regulation software. More than 1.5 million applications have been processed through Tyler’s cannabis solutions, representing 1.1 million registered users. Tyler now supports cannabis regulatory agencies in 11 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
