Why do dispensaries need insurance?

Business insurance provides a financial safety net against theft, fires, and injuries. It also covers risks specific to the cannabis industry, such as adverse reactions to medical marijuana, edibles, and topicals. Some types of insurance, like general liability coverage, may be required by state law.
