"Our goal is to formulate an effective cannabis compliance system that is paid for by effective and efficient compliance enforcement."-Jaimie Lewis, CEO
"IF YOU DEPRIVE YOURSELF OF OUTSOURCING AND YOUR COMPETITORS DO NOT, YOU'RE PUTTING YOURSELF OUT OF BUSINESS"
-LEE KUAN YEW
Paul McNulty, former U.S DeputyAttorney General once said "If you think compliance is expensive-try non-compliance".
Compliance for cannabis involves much more than the incorporation of additional job duties to existing staff. It requires a dedicated taskforce with a proper allocation of duties to run a successful cannabis program.
Jaimie Anese Lewis, MPA
COE & Principal Consultant
Core Compliance LLC began serving public agencies in 2019 after a request for contracting services was made for the City of Adelanto. Upon examination of the existing structure, Executive Director, Jaimie Lewis carefully noted the many elements of compliance that were not being regulated due to a lack of staff, lack of expertise in the field, and most importantly, a severe delay in beginning proper cannabis compliance. After two years of implementation, a process has been created to help municipalities minimize wasteful administrative costs, increase expertise in the area of cannabis oversight, and maximize revenue potential through proper enforcement.
Our vision is to create an equitable and efficient cannabis compliance task force, that will enforce and monitor all areas of cannabis approved through the local jurisdiction.
