BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

BI to hold cannabis risk management and insurance conference

Reprints
Business Insurance cannabis conference

Business Insurance is launching a conference to examine the insurance needs of the rapidly expanding cannabis and cannabinoid industry.

As more and more states allow the legal sale marijuana for medical and recreational purposes, the cannabis industry is becoming big business with a need for the full range of financial services, including insurance.

While the insurance industry has been wary of providing coverage for the cannabis sector in the past — in part due to the continued conflict between federal and state law on the legality of marijuana production and sales — more insurers, brokers and agents are participating in the market.

The Business Insurance Cannabis & Hemp conference will be held in New York in October and will examine everything from property/casualty coverages for cannabis manufacturers and distributers, to directors and officers liability coverage for any company connected with the sector, to implications for the workers compensation market.
