Insurance Business America Interviews Stewart on Legalization of Recreational Cannabis

December 3, 2018

Ian Stewart (Partner-Los Angeles) was interviewed by Insurance Business America U.S. for an article titled “The Dominoes Are Falling as States Move to Legalize Recreational Cannabis” in the December 3, 2018, online issue. With regard to the federal Strengthening the Tenth Amendment through Entrusting States (STATES) Act, Ian noted: “We’re further along than we thought we’d be a year or two ago … The other big thing to watch is the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill, which should be signed in the next month or so, and it’s expected to incorporate very broad protections for hemp and the hemp-derived CBD market. If that were to happen, and I think it will, then you can see the CBD market really take off in 2019.”
