Investor interest in cannabis-related businesses has grown significantly in recent years as many U.S. states and Canada have legalized some form of cannabis use and the operation of related businesses.

Investors should be wary of potential considerations under U.S. anti-money laundering laws when assessing opportunities in the cannabis industry.
