    Marijuana Law

    Hotel 1000
    Seattle, WA

    There is little dispute that 2016 continued a streak of the most significant years in marijuana policy since President Richard M. Nixon signed the Controlled Substances Act into law over 45 years ago. On November 8, 2016, California, Nevada, Massachusetts, and Maine all voted to legalize recreational marijuana—doubling the number of legal-marijuana states to eight. Arkansas, Florida, and North Dakota legalized medical marijuana for specific medical conditions. Early indicators suggest that 2017 will see even more reforms across the country. With medical marijuana now legal in 29 states and the District of Columbia, insurers, employers, and business owners are being confronted with new challenges, as well as opportunities. In today’s ever-changing legal landscape, is your practice prepared to navigate the nuances of complex cannabis regulation, law, and policy? In response to audience and industry demand, the challenges involved in insuring marijuana businesses is a significant topic at this year’s seminar. Please join us as we guide you through legal considerations faced by businesses, insurers, and employers dealing with the reality of legalized growing, sale, and use of marijuana.
