Cannabis & Coverage, Claims and Property Issues
By Shannon Wood, Associate, Zarek Taylor Grossman Hanrahan LLP

There are many specific risks associated with the use and cultivation of cannabis which affect the insurance world. Of particular interest are the grow-op exclusion and potential coverage issues for claims related to theft and damage to legal recreational cannabis plants.

The hazards associated with smoking marijuana are more obvious, including the risk of fire, odor, and overall health concerns, but even growing marijuana comes with its own dangers.

Fire is also a big risk involved with the cultivation of marijuana due the equipment used to grow the plant, minor explosions from the butane, and wiring/electrical issues.
