Folks receiving medical marijuana have a medical issue which qualifies them to do so
. Therefore the insurer will probably want to know what that medical condition is (as indicated on your card) and will take that into consideration in issuing the policy.
For example, say you have cancer and are smoking a little dope for pain relief. The insurance company would rate you as having cancer and being a smoker.
