The kind of coverage that marijuana businesses can obtain are very much similar to the coverage that any other normal business can obtain. For example, marijuana businesses can obtain coverage for fire and theft, but not for flooding. But it is important for businesses to understand that marijuana is an illegal drug federally and no marijuana insurance company will cover damages resulting from a federal raid. Under the federal law, buying and selling of marijuana is illegal and although many states have legalized the use of marijuana for medical reasons, the states are in conflict with the federal law.
What this means is that the federal government can raid marijuana dispensaries, cultivation centres and other facilities anytime. If the owner of the business is found to be in breach of any of the marijuana related laws, then the business or the assets can be seized. The business can even be shut down. So in such cases, the marijuana insurance company may not be able to offer insurance coverage. Therefore, it is essential to run the operation in compliance with the law. As a business owner, you can consult with the insurance company and find out about the plans that can provide comprehensive cover for your business.
