Justin Dufour

Founder

Justin received his undergraduate Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Information Systems and Business Administration, with an emphasis in Finance from Chapman University. Also during this time, Justin founded the Computer Information and Computer Science Honor Society at Chapman and was rewarded with a Microsoft Scholarship to become certified as both a Microsoft Network Engineer and a Microsoft Database Administrator. Justin was recruited from Chapman University by MetLife Investors, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MetLife Insurance, to build banking software to manage their variable annuity investment portfolio. In the first year of implementation over $14B in transactions flawlessly moved through the system he designed. Justin was quickly promoted to Lead Systems Analyst. Justin then went on to attend St. Mary’s School of law where he received his Juris Doctorate as well as his Master of Science in Industrial Engineering.

While studying for the patent bar in Oregon, Justin met his former partners and started Orchestra Software. During his time at Orchestra, Justin acted as the Chief Technology Officer and guided strategic development of the company. During his time at Orchestra, Justin’s efforts lead to a four-fold increase in production and efficiency. Orchestra offers three industry-leading solutions, for the fuel industry, the multi-tenant restaurant industry, and the craft beer Industry. Each one of these industries offers their own complexities from taxation, third party integration’s, and excess government regulation. The solution Justin developed for the Craft Beer industry is responsible for processing over 15% of all the Craft Beer brewed in the United States, with clients such as Firestone Walker, Odell, and Full Sail. In the mid-tier fuel industry, Justin managed the creation of a solution which allowed fuel cooperatives greater control over fuel purchasing and fuel distribution management among their members, governing over a $150M line of credit spread over 350 active members.

Developing solutions for these industries has put Justin in a prime position to run this company. As CEO, he looks forward to tackling the cannabis industry by providing the first true micro vertical industry solution for the cannabis sectors, backed with decades of experience dealing with complex taxation, industrial and business processes, and government regulations. Justin is confident that Viridian Sciences will lead the way with the best business management software available for the Medical, Recreational, and Industrial cannabis industries.

Cannabis Compliance: Getting You Through the Weeds.

A lot goes into staying up-to-date when it comes to regulatory compliance within the cannabis industry. You will put in countless hours reading documents and doing your best to understand what all the legal jargon means. There are numerous requirements that may or may not apply to your business structure. The truth of the matter is you will do your best but at some point in time, you will find yourself out of cannabis compliance with one rule or another. The best thing one can do is to be diligent and relentless when it comes to keeping current with the rules and procedures governing the industry. You may be asking, well, where do I start? First, get a compliance book. No joke, go out and buy a large three ring binder, highlighters, sharpies, and dividers because you are going to need them. Make this book your “Compliance Lexicon”. As the Compliance Manager, you are not going to want to continually be looking the same things up so it is nice to have everything in one place. Plus, you can divide the sections for easy reference and make valuable notes in the margins of your lexicon. It will also make it easy to add any updates to the laws, statutes or rules as they change or are created. So, you have a binder now, what goes in it? Depending on your state, every state with a legal cannabis program, be it medical or recreational, will have an initiative, measure, and/or house bill that has been passed allowing the State’s cannabis program to exist. These documents will become the basis of...

Georgia governor signs expansion of who can legally possess CBD oil

ATLANTA — Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal approved an expansion of the state’s medical marijuana program on Tuesday, allowing people being treated for six additional medical conditions to possess cannabis oil. The new qualifying conditions include autism, AIDS, Tourette’s syndrome, and Alzheimer’s disease. Patients must register with the state to be eligible and have a doctor’s permission. Many of the additions restrict use to patients who are in severe or end-stage condition. The new law also allows people in a hospice program, regardless of diagnosis, to legally possess the oil that’s low in THC, the chemical responsible for the marijuana high.

Epileptic Georgia high school student can’t take his legal CBD medicine on campus

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — Each day about lunchtime at Warner Robins High School, 17-year-old CJ Harris must leave campus to take his medicine. His dad, Curtis Harris, drives to school, gets CJ out of class, and the two ride around the block or sometimes head home. CJ draws some cannabis oil in a syringe, squirts it under his tongue and waits for it to dissolve. He’s been taking the medicine every six hours for the past four months for epilepsy. “I haven’t had a seizure since,” the high school football player said. The oil, derived from the cannabis plant, wasn’t a problem for administrators at First Presbyterian Day School, a private school in Macon. But the rules are different at public schools, the Harrises learned during a recent transfer process to Houston County. “I told them about it, you know, ‘He takes (the) oil for his seizures … , and that’s when they went into a panic, like, ‘We don’t know what to do about this,’” Curtis Harris said of Houston County school officials. “They called the head state nurse, and the head state nurse told him that he can’t even have it on campus.” CJ is the first medical marijuana patient at a Houston County school since state Rep. Allen Peake of Macon introduced a law in 2015 that established a state medical marijuana registry that is limited to people with specific diseases.
