Cannabis use has been a long-time (somewhat) clandestine activity at festivals, concerts and other special events. This is starting to change as more states legalize recreational use and event organizers attempt to draw crowds with designated cannabis zones. This, of course, carries a new set of risks for special event insurers.

“This is the next thing that is going to be happening at events. Whether it is a festival, flea market or concert in the fairgrounds,” explains Peter Tempkins, managing director for Hub International’s Entertainment Industry Solutions brokerage. He tells PropertyCasualty360.com this could ultimately even include indoor events, albeit within laws regarding smoking in public places.
