AUI Brokerage Offers Cannabis Coverage with a BIG Appetite

Marijuana coverage has been a hot topic for some time now because it seems to be its own enterprise. Just last week, Insurance Business wrote, “It’s important to think beyond just cannabis. After legalization, farmers can start growing hemp again. You can make paint out of it, building material, clothing homes… so there’s all kinds of things beyond cannabis legalization that could be coming out of this that no-one’s even looking at. Imagine if we started growing hemp and used it to make fuel for cars.”
