Notwithstanding that an increasing number of states have legalized the recreational and/or medical use of marijuana, the possession, production, distribution and sale of marijuana remains prohibited under Federal law. As a result, many businesses engaged in activities related to the possession, production, distribution and sale of marijuana in states where such activities are legal under state law often encounter obstacles to obtaining insurance coverage related to such activities. In response to this problem, the NAIC has formed the Cannabis (C) Working Group to “consider the insurance regulatory issues surrounding the legalized cannabis business, including availability and scope of coverage, Workers’ Compensation issues, and consumer information and protection.” The Cannabis (C) Working Group will develop a white paper outlining issues and making recommendations for the development of related regulatory guidance. Such work should be complete by the first quarter of 2020.
