The California Insurance Commissioner has approved the admission of Golden Bear Insurance Company to sell “cannabis business insurance” in the state. The insurance is intended to provide coverage to the cannabis industry, including coverage for workers in the industry. The filing, the first of its kind nationwide, raises a number of questions including: will “cannabis business insurance” cover the “gaps” provided by workers’ who are intoxicated on marijuana? Will it cover slow-downs in productivity from using the product? Will it cover vending machine abuse by workers with the munchies? Inquiring minds want answers to these questions and we look forward to California providing them. HT:Insurance Journal.
