Growing a Cannabis Business
With the legalization of cannabis in some states, the cannabis business has been growing exponentially in recent years. Marijuana is available for consumption in about half of the US for both medical and recreational uses. As a result, this has led to an increase in both consumption and transport of the plant and its byproducts. No matter the business, if you are transporting cannabis, American Business Insurance, Inc. can help keep your business insured and on the road.
States that Support Medical Marijuana
The majority of states that have opened up for the legalization of marijuana maintain that it is only legal when used medically with a prescription. Medical marijuana is basically the same as recreational marijuana, and people use it to treat a variety of illnesses from anxiety to glaucoma and pain relief. Look at our infographic below to see which states support legal medical marijuana use.
States that Support Recreational Marijuana
In recent years a host of states have fully legalized the use of recreational marijuana from California on the west coast to Massachusetts on the east coast. This means that there have been a host of business and stores opening in these states that are able to sell marijuana plant-based products to anyone 21 years of age and older. Look at our infographic below to see which states support recreational marijuana use.
Despite the fact that many states have legalized cannabis businesses, it is important to remember that these states still have strict regulations and laws in place for the transport and use of marijuana. For transporting marijuana in-state boundaries, the laws depend on the state. Generally, businesses that have licenses to operate within that state are safe to transport it. The business must be registered with both state and local authorities in order to transport cannabis.
Other regulations are also in place including the notification and receipt of shipment on both ends, as well as records of the shipment. In addition, the marijuana usually must be transported by an individual over the age of 21 in either a fully enclosed contained or sealed package. Whether you are transporting manufactured marijuana, or live plants, American Business Insurance Services, Inc. will help you get the coverage you need at the best rates possible.
