Federal Law Prohibits Insuring Marijuana Farms Burning in California Wildfires

This is a sad example of what happens when State Law runs smack into the brick wall of Federal bureaucracy. California law says they’re legal, but existing Federal law prohibits insuring marijuana farms burning in California wildfires throughout the state. It’s a particularly challenging situation for the nearly 15,000 marijuana farms in California. Their crop, marijuana, is listed as a Schedule I controlled substance by the DEA (US Drug Enforcement Agency). So, technically, it doesn’t matter that states like California have legalized it because the Federal Government won’t recognize the state law. So anything that is regulated by the Feds, from insurance to banking to mail, becomes a problem for these businesses.

Lately, it seems like the errors are becoming more prevalent. To be honest, if you consider yourself a “professional” in the business of writing, then errors just make you look bad. So, I thought I would share some of my ideas on how to catch errors in the content writing process.

Your Odds of Avoiding a Disability

According to the statistics from the Social Security Administration (SSA), your odds of avoiding a disability actually get worse as you get older. Most people believe their odds improve, but one of the glaring Myths about Disabilities is that most are caused by injuries. This simply isn’t true. Most disability claims are a result of chronic diseases and illness, which afflicts us more as we age. Thus, the increase in disabilities as we get older.

Forbes is Stretching the Term Self-Made with Their Latest Women Billionaires List

I would never, in a million years, attempt to minimize the hard work that it takes to become a billionaire. I get it. Most people in business work hard and self-made billionaires are obviously no exception to that rule. Unfortunately, I believe Forbes is stretching the term Self-Made with their latest Women Billionaires List. It’s almost as if they wanted to pad the list to make it appear larger. Clearly this is just my opinion. But doesn’t it take away from the Sara Blakely’s of the world when you add Marian Illitch to the same list?

Own Occupation vs Any Occupation Disability Definition

Ultimately an insurance policy is made up of the definitions, clauses, exclusions and benefits that an insurance carrier decides to build into the policy that eventually gets sold to policyholders.
