As the legal and regulatory landscape surrounding marijuana in this country continues to evolve, so too have the insurance coverage needs and challenges faced by the legal marijuana industry. Direct players in this space, such as grow operations, edibles manufacturers, and dispensaries, as well as indirect participants such as healthcare providers and investors, must be mindful of numerous insurance issues unique to the legal cannabis market. Traditional insurance policies may not provide sufficient coverage due to marijuana’s continued illegality at the federal level. Specialized insurance products exist, but they are largely untested and may be subject to the same pitfall.
This course, presented by Benjamin D. Tievsky of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP’s policyholder-side Insurance Recovery & Advisory Group, will introduce the audience to insurance coverage issues faced by the legal marijuana industry and offer practical guidance for navigating these relatively uncharted waters.
Cool thank you
I love that Lawline chose to tackle an unusual topic like this. This is one reason I subscribe -- local CLEs don't cover interesting, off-the-beaten-path legal topics. And insurance is becoming more and more complex and, so, more and more important for lawyers to understand.
Liked speaker. This area of law is new and controversial. He had the right tone and humor for discussing!
That was really fun for a square (1970's definition) like me!
very knowledgeable on the subject
Very interesting topic and well presented
Made insurance actually interesting.
Very interesting and informative presentation. Many thanks.
