On January 1, 2018 California opened the world’s largest legal marijuana market. As a result, more than 5,000 cannabis industry employers are now licensed to do business in California. The demand for workers’ compensation insurance in the cannabis industry has never been greater.
For more than 20 years, State Fund has been quietly providing coverage to the cannabis industry ever since medical marijuana was legalized in 1996. Our experience equips us to serve these newly recognized California employers in the recreational cannabis business.
We are working on several outreach initiatives for the cannabis industry, including an employer education series to be launched later this year. To introduce State Fund to new cannabis employers and offer our expertise to the industry, we are attending two upcoming cannabis trade shows. Look for us at the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) Cannabis Business Summit & Expo in San Jose July 25-26, booth #1338. In Southern California, find us at the California Cannabis Business Conference in Anaheim, October 22-23.
