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”.
Employers and their workers compensation insurers in New Jersey would have to cover the costs for medical marijuana under a proposal introduced in the state Senate on Thursday.
S. 3406 states that “an employer or workers’ compensation insurance carrier or private passenger automobile insurance carrier shall provide coverage for costs associated with the medical use of cannabis.”
The bill also states that “an employer or carrier shall not be required to provide coverage for costs associated with the medical use of cannabis upon intervention by the federal government to enforce the ‘Controlled Substances Act.’”
The bill was referred to the Senate Commerce Committee.
A study released earlier this month showed a 6.7% decline in workers compensation claim activity where states have approved medical marijuana.
