NJ.com Publishes Worthy Op-Ed on Insurance Coverage of Marijuana

Today, the Star-Ledger (NJ.com) published an op-ed by Sequel Legal Principal Attorney Stacey Worthy discussing mandatory insurance coverage of marijuana products. As counsel to Aimed Alliance, Worthy explains that requiring coverage of non-FDA-approved marijuana products could do more harm than good. Some patients may look to marijuana to treat complex medical conditions, yet non-FDA-approved products are not required to be backed by clinical evidence. As a result, they “can have unpredictable and unintended consequences,” according to the FDA. The Star-Ledger is New Jersey’s largest online newspaper.
