States Take Action on Indoor Environmental Quality, Cannabis Industry Health and Safety Legislation

February 12, 2018‚Äč

Illinois, Maine, New Jersey, and New York are among the States that have recently begun taking action on a variety of indoor environmental quality (IEQ), and (separately) cannabis issues. The IEQ legislation focuses on Legionella, mold, and related issues. The cannabis legislation would require an IH or professional engineer to review the plans for storage, preparation, electrical, gas monitoring, fire suppression, and exhaust systems of a proposed cannabis products manufacturing facility that seeks to engage in cannabis extraction using hazardous substances.

AIHA has or is in the process of taking action on these issues. Email Mark Ames for additional information and how get involved.
