IN: Cannabis and the marketplace: Haze of confusion

Dear Valued Customer,

More states are passing legislation permitting medical and/or recreational marijuana use, which raises concerns about users driving under the influence of marijuana.It’s important to understand that smoking often causes almost immediate intoxication, with impairment typically lasting 2 to 4 hours. Intoxication onset is more delayed for other methods, sometimes up to two hours for edibles – and impairment may last much longer.

In this issue of the “Waimea Insurance News” we review how driving under the influence of drugs is causing an increasing number of crashes and fatalities, and how employers and insurers are affected by a patchwork of state marijuana laws rules and regulations.

We appreciate your continued business and look forward to serving you.

Kind regards,
