Vape Disease Concerns: Does Your Policy Provide Vape Insurance Coverage?

Vape Insurance Coverage

As sales and popularity of vape pens continue to rise, so do the exposures for cannabis businesses.

A vaping-related lung disease has been the hot topic in recent news with 6 deaths and 380 confirmed and probable cases of vaping-related lung illnesses in 36 states. What does this mean for your cannabis business? You’d better read your insurance policy.

According to Cannabis Business Times , Nicole Howell Neubert, attorney-at-law at Clark Neubert, says that anyone involved in the legal marketplace should be taking a temperature check on every contract and every product that’s passing through his or her business. 

“To mitigate potential risk, all operators in the supply chain should take a look at their production, distribution chains, testing, and insurance coverage. And discuss with their attorneys in view of the state law in their jurisdiction,” Neubert says. “Proving a products liability case is based on many factors. But it’s important to know that anyone in the supply chain can be brought in as a defendant regardless of whether the retailer sold the specific product or not.”  

Simply put, anyone in the supply chain can get pulled into a product liability suit. Even if you are not held liable in the event of a clian, you may incur significant defense costs.
