The legalization of marijuana is beginning to touch every line of insurance including health and life insurance, property & casualty, commercial general liability, workers’ compensation, directors & officers’ liability, cyber and product liability. Offering coverage for cannabis enterprises can provide a new business opportunity for insurers, but it also raises many questions as they navigate the conflicts between federal and state regulations.

BenefitsPRO sister brands Claims magazine, National Underwriter Property & Casualty and Propertycasualty360.com are sponsoring a free webinar on Tuesday, July 23 at 2 p.m. ET that will examine many of the issues insurers must address as they venture into this area. The webinar will examine the risks for insurers, marijuana-related businesses, and companies whose employees may use marijuana medically or recreationally. Providing their insights on the subject will be Teresa Bartlett, M.D., senior medical officer of Sedgwick; Patrick McManamon, CEO of Cannasure; and Ian Stewart, an attorney in the Los Angeles office of Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker, LLP.
