Vegas SuperStore achieves best-in-class security and compliance through partnership with ID scanning tech company

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Planet 13, a vertically-integrated multi-state cannabis company and owners of the world’s largest cannabis dispensary in Las Vegas, is leveraging solutions to maintain the highest levels of security and compliance in the cannabis retail industry.

“Planet 13 prides itself in meeting and exceeding the highest standards in all facets of our rapidly growing industry,” said David Farris, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Planet 13. “Age verification is critically important and’s solutions ensure we are in compliance.”

Planet 13 uses solutions to read physical and digital copies of government issued IDs, including passports. ID scanners are placed at each of its Las Vegas SuperStore dispensary’s 16 check-in stations and they sync with a centralized visitor management system – VeriScan Online Enterprise.

The VeriScan authentication engine is built to detect fake IDs within seconds. Those that are flagged as suspicious by the VeriScan software trigger alerts to store security. Because all Planet 13 scanners sync to a central database, banned patrons are immediately flagged at all entry-points. This centralized database also allows for multi-scan alerting to maintain compliance with anti-looping laws.

In addition to scanning and verification, VeriScan performs ID parsing to collect, separate, and classify information from the various fields on IDs. This allows Planet 13 to seamlessly harvest the names and demographic/geographic information of its guests. This data is providing insights into customer profiles, which is especially valuable as Planet 13 expands its footprint into other states, including supplementing its SuperStores with smaller, neighborhood retail shops.

“We’re proud to help Planet 13 lead the retail cannabis industry in compliance, security, and expansion,” said Denis Petrov, CEO, “We provide simple, secure solutions to help dispensaries reduce liability and protect their licenses by validating IDs, including a customer’s age, in a matter of seconds. Beyond compliance, our solutions enhance guest experience and provide data that is incredibly valuable for marketing and operations.” and its VeriScan solutions serve multi-state operators, enterprise dispensary operations, single-location dispensaries, and cannabis couriers. It is continuously monitoring the compliance landscape to help ensure dispensaries meet regulatory requirements for ID scanning, age verification, and data retention. Through a subscription-style service, software automatically updates to ensure ongoing compliance with changing regulations.
