Air Quality - environmental impacts of cannabis

Growing cannabis emits highly reactive volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Marijuana Infused Product (MIP) facilities also emit VOCs from solvent extraction processes. 
Both types of VOCs from the cannabis industry contribute to ozone formation in Denver's ozone nonattainment area. We have recommended best management practices for both grow and MIP facilities to reduce their air quality impacts.
