While cannabis legalization is spreading across the U.S, many insurance companies still have a bias against users. If you apply with the wrong insurance company, you may be declined for coverage or pay a higher rate than necessary.

Marcan Insurance works with the highest rated insurance companies that are marijuana-friendly. These companies will approve you for coverage and you do not need to hide your use. You will also be approved at a non-tobacco rate, if you haven’t used cigarettes within the past 12 months. You should not be paying tobacco rates for life insurance if you use marijuana.

Chris and his team are a resource for insurance, investments and financial planning. Chris is a fiduciary and will always place your interests first and as highest priority. In addition to Marcan Insurance, Chris is the owner of Abrams Insurance Solutions. His companies are A+ rated by the Better Business Bureau.
