CIPR Webinar:
Weeding through the Unique Insurance Needs of the Cannabis Industry
Wednesday, May 16, 2018
11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m.

Please plan to join the NAIC Center for Insurance Policy and Research (CIPR) for its upcoming webinar, Weeding through the Unique Insurance Needs of the Cannabis Industry. The webinar, hosted by California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, is scheduled Wednesday, May 16 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. CT

The cannabis industry continues to expand as more states legalize its use for medical and recreational purposes. Marijuana is now legal for adult recreational use in nine states and Washington D.C. Medical marijuana is legal in 29 states. This emerging sector brings a host of unique needs and complex risks to be insured. However, uncertain legal status, lack of standardized business practices and data needs challenge insurers' abilities to provide comprehensive insurance coverages.

This webinar will explore cannabis industry activities, its risks and how its first and third party coverage needs are unique from other industries. This will include how conflicting state and federal laws are impacting claims, the impact of policy exclusions and gaps in available coverage. Concluding will be a roundtable discussion on the future of the cannabis market and the impact of emerging trends such as on-site consumption, cryptocurrency and blockchain.

Topics Covered:

  • Implications of the current federal administration's views
  • Legal standing of cannabis across the states
  • Risks specific to the cannabis supply chain
  • First party coverage challenges
  • Unique commercial general liability needs
  • Cannabis-related product liability risks
  • Impact of cash-based business on Inland Marine
  • Complications of legal uncertainty on workers compensation
  • Impact of policy exclusions
  • Emerging best practices and standards
  • Driving under the influence
  • On-site consumption issues
  • Role of technology in cannabis-related insurance availability

NAIC Insurance Summit:
Center for Insurance & Policy Research (CIPR) Innovation Program

Insurance Summit

The NAIC Insurance Summit is a premier conference for a diverse array of insurance regulators, industry representatives and innovators to gather in an educational and informative setting to explore ideas, the latest technology and regulatory practices. The Insurance Summit will be held June 18-22 at the Sheraton Kansas City at Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri. During this week we will have more than 50 keynotes, panels and sessions from thought leaders and innovators throughout the industry.

In conjunction with the Insurance Summit, the CIPR's Innovation Program will explore emerging innovation and technology–such as artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT)–and discuss their potential opportunities and challenges within the insurance marketplace. Our program will kick-off Tuesday with two thought-provoking keynote addresses on the use of Big Data and behavior analytics, and on the many exciting innovations and technology we often hear about. On Wednesday, the Innovation Program will showcase our 2nd annual "D'Bet(t)a Bowl" competition where InsurTech startups will 'pitch' their innovative ideas to a panel of judges. Thursday will open with a session exploring an innovation with potentially far-reaching implications for the regulatory community–followed by a series of sessions you won't want to miss!
