Technology platform Dutchie, which provides point-of-sale (POS) hardware for cannabis retailers across the United States, reported interruptions and outages on Thursday – the unofficial marijuana holiday 4/20 and one of the biggest sales days of the year in the industry.
As of 1 p.m. ET Thursday, the Oregon-based company reported it was “working with our infrastructure provider for resolution.”

In initially reporting the outages, the company said both “timeouts with multiple endpoints” were related to Metrc as well as “latency and errors on Ecommerce.”

According to the company’s website, Dutchie processes more than $14 billion of annual cannabis sales at more than 6,000 retailers.
The company also reported “elevated error rates” on Tuesday and Wednesday, according to its status page.
