Insurance Journal to Launch Insuring Cannabis

Sponsored Content By | June 12, 2019

San Diego, CA, June 12, 2019 – Today Insurance Journal premiers Insuring Cannabis, a newsletter for insurance professionals and risk managers who need a full view of what’s happening with marijuana on state, national and international levels. It will focus on news and features, insurance issues, markets and coverages, regulations, political and legal developments, and the latest research.

Veteran news reporter and Insurance Journal West editor Don Jergler will edit the new newsletter.

“Why do we need a newsletter focused on cannabis and insurance?” asks Jergler. “I’ll give you four great reasons. Recreational marijuana use is legal in nearly a dozen states, and medicinal use is legal in another 33 states. Cannabis is on its way to becoming a $57 billion industry by 2027, according to BDS Analytics and Arcview Market Research. There are nearly 20 publicly traded cannabis companies with conservative estimates placing the total number of cannabis-related companies worldwide at around 30,000 and counting. All those businesses need insurance.”

Cannasure Insurance Services is Insurance Journal’s launch sponsor and has made the newsletter free to recipients. For almost a decade, Cannasure has been a trusted expert and leading insurance provider in the cannabis and hemp industry.
