As the registrar at CAMLI, I end up talking to a lot of people who are just starting out in AML compliance, or were given the task a while ago and are working really hard to do the best they can. One thing I always encourage them to do is read the regulations and learn as much as they can from whatever source works for them. Knowledge really does give you the power to succeed in any task.

By the time of this workshop, the legalized cannabis sector will have been in operation for two years. Much has been written about the sector; millionaires have been made; and the sector is struggling to meet any levels of success that were forecast for the initial years of operation. The result of these various growing pains has been an increasing concern about the potential risks associated with an industry facing almost monthly evidence of oversight failures and questionable management practices.
