New Delhi: Microsoft embarks on a new journey with its recent tie up with a software industry that supports the legal marijuana industry.

After the United States government decision to legalize the use of marijuana in 20 states in for medical and recreational use, the tech giant announced its first-ever collaboration with California based start-up Kind Financial, which helps businesses and government agencies track sales of legalized marijuana "from seed to sale", as per BBC news.

Being the first-ever tie-up of its kind, it will help in eliminating the traditional stigma linked with marijuana.

Kind Financial earlier developed applications to help marijuana businesses accept electronic payments.

With this partnership, Microsoft is looking forward to help individual and government launch successful regulatory reforms.
